Music at Stone Church

pipe organ

An Overview

Music is provided during worship on most Sundays through the school year by our chancel choir, augmented by pipe organ, piano, and on occasion by others - a children's choir, a volunteer brass group, a volunteer bell choir and hired chamber players.

The chancel choir consists of over forty volunteer singers. Nancy Kromm has been directing since early September 2006. She also chairs the Music Department at the University of Santa Clara. Mark Bruce begins as our organist in Sept. 2016. He comes to us after almost 11 years at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Los Gatos.

Our sixteen rank pipe organ was custom built by Schoenstein and Co. of San Francisco, the largest and oldest pipe organ firm in the West. The instrument was installed in 1986, and is shown above.
