Our cantors lead the assembly in song and proclaim the Word through the responsorial psalm. After an informal audition, training is provided. A pleasant voice is all that’s required, but the ability to read music is also desirable. Monthly scheduling is flexible.
Organists and Pianists
Organists and pianists provide the accompaniment for the singing assembly. Volunteers are invited to audition informally. Practice time is made available.
Our contemporary ensembles consist of singers, guitarists, pianists, and various woodwind and string players. The groups determine their own practice schedules and play at various liturgies throughout the month.
The adult choir enhances congregational singing with harmony and descants, in addition to performing choral music of all styles. The choir sings at three Masses a month during the fall and spring semesters. Any parishioner (including a high school or college student) is invited to join. Rehearsals are Thursday evenings from 7:30 to 9:00 PM in the choir loft. There are no rehearsals during the summer. http://www.youtube.com/user/stcharlesbloomington
