Harcourt Parish has music offered at Sunday services throughout the year. Our musical tradition includes congregational signing from both the Lift Every Voice and Sing African-American hymnal and the 1982 Hymnal of the Episcopal Church.
During the school year the music is led by the twenty person parish choir. The choir is composed of volunteer community members and student section leaders. Rehearsal are generally once a week at 9 am on Sundays. The repertoire is varied and ranges from traditional pieces to more contemporary.
Spirituals from Harcourt Parish is a recording of traditional hymns and songs from the African American musical lexicon performed by Jonathan Tazewell, Sharon Stohrer and Robert Milnikel . The proceeds from the sale of this album support student musicians from Kenyon College who participate in the Harcourt Parish music program. Jonathan Tazewell is a professor at Kenyon College and serves as the cantor for Harcourt Parish. Sharon Stohrer is the former choral director and organist at Harcourt, and Robert Milnikel is a professor of mathematics and clarinetist.
