The St. Paul Kantorei has been the adult choir at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Addison, IL for many years. The church began in 1906, with the current building built in 1908. Today, it is a small choir of 10-15 members, and an integral part of its own support system, through prayer for each other and those around us in need. They are dedicated to providing an enhanced worship experience through music for the congregation, including cantatas, tenebrae services, and special services.

Janet S. Phelps
Janet S. Phelps has served as Music Director for King's Grant Presbyterian Church for 41 years. She has led three adult music ensembles and three handbell choirs. Recently retired, the church has named the Wick's Pipe Organ after her and has also given her the title of Music Director Emerita in recognition of her excellent service.
The Sanctuary Choir of King's Grant Presbyterian Church is a dedicated group of musicians that has offered their God-given talents for meaningful worship beyond the notes on the page. We had the good fortune and privilege of having Mary McDonald lead us in concert at our church in 2019. We also celebrated and sang FESTIVAL OF CHRISTMAS in 2021 with choirs and orchestra. It is our joy to be here in NYC to sing this beautiful work.
