Children / Youth Choirs 2018 – 2019

Information Regarding the Children’s Choir Program for the 2018-2019 Year

 

Sr. Chorister Information – 3rd Grade-10th Grade

This is a performing choir responsible for weekly participation in the morning Eucharist Services.

Expectations:

  • Sing the weekly morning Eucharist Service (10:30 am, Sundays)
  • Meet the rehearsal schedule
    • 10am Sunday
    • 3:45 – 5pm Sunday Evening
  • Members accepted by application and audition.  The audition is very simple. It is not necessary to sing a solo piece of music, though if a child wishes to do so, that is certainly encouraged.  The audition is primarily concerned with the child’s pitch matching capability and voice quality.
  • Compensations: $20 weekly (pro-rated for absences and late arrivals)
  • Attendance Requirements will be outlined in a Parents’ Meeting at the beginning of the year.  Time & place of parent meeting will be communicated at a later date.

Application Required.  Please email Joel Gregory at joel@stjohnsmontgomery.org to request an application
