This summer I had the opportunity to attend the National Pastoral Musicians Convention in Cincinnati Ohio. My main focus was children's/youth choral directing. I learned different approaches and techniques in choral conducting. I also learned that we are definitely on the right track! I have seen a tremendous improvement in our youth choir over the last two years and would like to continue that trend! The children's/youth choir has enhanced our liturgies beautifully on the second Sunday of each month with their beautiful harmonies and overall well preparedness. They have been a committed "team".
This season rehearsals begin on Tuesday September 12, 2017 at 5 P.M. in the Church. This afternoon/evening will be an open house followed by a pizza party. What this means is if your child is curious or considering the choir this is a good opportunity to come and try it out without any commitment. The 5 P.M. mini-rehearsal will last for about 45 minutes followed by a pizza party! Regular rehearsals are also on Tuesday nights at 5 P.M. and last 60-70 minutes. The kids sing the second Sunday of every month at the 11 A.M. Mass, the Lessons and Carol's program in December in conjunction with the adult choir, as well as the Christmas Eve Vigil Family Mass. If you have any questions please feel free to leave me a message at the rectory at (203) 934 6357
