St. Gregory Choristers (Youth Choir)
St. Gregory Choristers is open to all youth grades 3-12 (younger with permission from director.) This is a fun and exciting group, filled with opportunities to enjoy and present the music of the Catholic Liturgy, from Gregorian Chant to recent compositions.
We cover the basics about the role of music in Catholic liturgies, as well as a bit of Catholic music history, chant basics, and responses for the Holy Mass. Singers receive instruction on proper breathing techniques, melody and rhythm, vocal tone quality and choral singing skills. We also focus on prayer and on presenting our very best to God at our liturgies.
Students who enroll must be able to match pitch, but do not have to be able to read music. In addition, you need not be a member of Transfiguration Parish to enroll.
This choir meets weekly during the school year for rehearsals on Thursday afternoons, 3:30-4:45 p.m.
If you are interested in enrolling your children or have any questions, email director Mary K. Demko, firstname.lastname@example.org.
