CHERUB CHOIR (1st-4th Grades)
The Cherub Choir is an enjoyable introduction to choral singing for young school children. Members learn about singing in a group setting, simple vocal technique, and praying through song as they work to develop their choral sound. Choir members learn liturgical music of various styles, languages and cultures. Children also, on occasion, have the opportunity to accompany the choir with simple instruments such as small drums, maracas, tambourines, etc. The choir rehearses weekly, September through May (when school is in session), and sings once a month at our 9:00 AM Family Mass, and also at the 4:00 PM Christmas Eve liturgy.
Kindergarten-age students may be permitted to join after their parents' consultation with the director.
Rehearsal: Thursday, 3:00 - 4:15 PM** in the Hospitality House and in the church as designated.
**Please note: this rehearsal begins with a supervised snack and relaxation time from 3:00 to 3:30 PM. Actual rehearsal time is from 3:30 to 4:15 PM.
