St Mark’s Florence

St Mark’s Church in Florence is one of three worship centres that form a chaplaincy of the Church of England in the Diocese in Europe, known as St Mark’s Florence with St Peter’s Siena.

We have been serving the people of Tuscany, and the many visitors to the area on our current Florence site, for over 132 years. With the Sunday Sung High Mass at the centre of its active liturgical life, St Mark’s also has an extensive music and cultural scene, with its own concert and Mass choirs, St Mark’s Opera, as well as many concerts performed by visiting choirs and musicians. To this is added a wide variety of other cultural events that bring people together in artistic, literary or academic endeavour.

Thank you for visiting our site and we look forward to welcoming you to our chaplaincy.

Under the direction of accomplished director/composer/arranger Dr. Michael G. Martin, the Hilliard Darby Symphonic Choir is relentless in their quest for vocal excellence. The group continually ranks as one of the top choral programs in the USA, receiving the highest ratings in local and international competitions. ‘Symphonic’ frequently tours throughout the United States and around Europe, including performances in Ireland, London, Washington D.C., New York City, California, Hawaii, and more. Their concerts have been broadcast on national television and the BBC network, and this March they are traveling and performing throughout Italy. Whether singing in St. Paul's and Salisbury Cathedrals, or receiving superior ratings at contests, this group continues to pursue its craft, putting teamwork, technique, and musicality at the forefront.
Assisted by Hannah Sterman-Wilson, Symphonic Choir is an audition only choir that rehearses during school every day. It consists of 75 juniors and seniors. They have also worked with notable conductors such as Dr. Donald Neuen, Eric Whitacre, Dr. Ann Howard Jones, Professor James Gallagher, Dr. Eph Ely, Dr. Robert Ward, and former Mormon Tabernacle Choir director, Dr. Craig Jessop.
In 2008, Symphonic was chosen out of hundreds of entries from across the US as one of three high schools to perform the Duruflé Requiem at Carnegie Hall with Dr. Jessop and the St. Luke’s Orchestra. In 2014, the choir was then invited by Dr. Jessop to perform at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. for the National Memorial Day Choral Festival. In the fall of 2015, Dr. Jessop was the Conductor in Residence for a performance of Rutter’s “Mass of the Children.” For this concert, Symphonic was joined by Una Voce (the newly formed Darby alumni choir) and the Columbus Children’s Choir.
Symphonic Choir is one of more than six choirs at Hilliard Darby High School. The vocal music department has grown to over 250 students and has a large variety of choral groups to meet the needs of the students.
