Our Lady of the Lake
Music is an integral part of most liturgies. While the assembly is called to participate in singing, accompaniment and leadership can provide support that inspires the assembly’s participation. If you like to play an instrument or sing, please consider joining one of our groups.
Parish Choir… Members [as young as 4th grade students] of this group enhance the liturgy usually one Mass per weekend. Occasionally, the choir will participate in outreach programs. Members must have the ability to match pitch, but the ability to read music is not necessary. Rehearsals are generally Wednesdays from 6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m. during the school year or Saturdays every other week from 2p.m. to 3p.m. according to the monthly schedule.
Instrumentalists… Members enhance the liturgy according to skill level and availability. Rehearsals take place when parish choir meets or when director and instrumentalist can meet.
The Cantor Ministry…
Cantors must possess good ministerial, leadership, ear-training, and vocal skills. Rehearsals are with the parish choir or scheduled individually. The ability to read music is desired, but not necessary. Cantors sing at designated Masses. Acceptance into to this ministry is at the discretion of the music director. Youth welcome!
