Choir


Overview:

This year we are in the works of having the choir attend the Chicago Choral Festival and Mass which is led by the American Federation Pueri Cantores (a National Catholic Choral Organization). This event brings choirs from the greater Midwestern region together to sing liturgical music spanning 1500 years – from Gregorian chant to music of the twenty-first century. The festival will be held on Saturday, March 3 at Holy Name Cathedral. As this is a more costly field trip we are looking for donors to help fund the trip. If you are interested in making a donation please contact either myself or Mrs. Schram.

The St. Mary Parish School Choir had their first rehearsal this week.  They are busy preparing for the choral festival in Chicago.

       

The choir will once again be participating in our school’s Fine Arts Night. This event allows our students to showcase their talents in choir, band, Spanish and the incredible variety of art mediums taught to the students by Mrs. Drees.

Goal of the Program:

  • To develop skills to read parted music
  • To learn effective vocal skills and techniques
  • To Christmas carol at local nursing homes and assisted living houses
  • To learn repertoire for the school’s Christmas program and Fine Arts Night

Larger goals for the future include:

  • To compete at state choral competitions
  • To represent our school by singing the national anthem at a Brewers game
  • To become a member of the American Federation Pueri Cantores (a National Catholic Choral Organization)
