St Paul’s enjoys a rich tapestry of musical styles in worship and other special events. Jazz musicians lead Jazz Vespers; a bluegrass band leads worship on the lawn in the summer; our carillonneur plays selections from the tower most Sundays. Our senior, youth and children’s choirs, and handbell choir enrich our worship throughout the year. Musicians from our staff and congregation, as well as students from local university music programs, offer recitals and concerts at St Paul’s.

The South Wing was constructed in 1990 to provide classroom space as well as indoor access to the Narthex. The corridor of the South Wing soon presented itself as a perfect space to expand St Paul’s longtime commitment to the arts. The mounting of artistic exhibitions was envisioned by then Rector, the Rev. Nicholson B. White.
Over the past 25 years, the gallery has shown the works numerous local artists in a variety of media. Shows of work by members of St Paul’s have been featured as well.
On May 11, 2014, the South Wing Gallery and the front vestibule were renamed The Nicholson B. White Gallery and Rotunda in honor of the fourteenth rector of St Paul’s.
