At Our Lady Star of the Sea, our Music Ministry consists of a Children’s Choir, ages 6-12, and a multi-generational ensemble of singers and musicians ages 13+. We begin our rehearsals in the fall and continue throughout Pentecost. The choirs lead the assembly and assist in full and active participation in the Liturgy. The choir proclaims a broad range of sacred music including chant, early music, classical, and compositions of living and current composers. The beauty and dignity of our sacred music has a profound impact on the celebration of our Liturgies. Our talented and dedicated ministers of music offer their voices and instruments in joyous prayer and worship.
Our cantors and instrumentalists enrich our liturgies with the necessary skills to proclaim, lead, and enhance the music for our worshiping parish community. Being able to read music for choir members is preferred but not a must, just bring a willingness to learn and a desire to proclaim the Good News through music!
Instrumentalists should have the ability to play in any given key signature, be able to transpose, and to sightread music efficently. Sacred prayer sung by the faithful truly enriches our experience in the call to serve on another. St Augustine once remarked “To sing, is to pray twice.”
If you are interested in joining this Ministry, please contact Alice in the parish office at (386) 427-4530.
Our rehearsals take place on Wednesdays at 6:30pm in the Parish Hall choir room!
