Choirs and Cantors
ADULT CHOIR – Rehearsals Tuesdays 6:30pm-8pm
The adult choir at St. John Vianney ranges in age from High School singers to mature adult singers, all lifting their voices to sing God’s Praise! Our goal is to allow all those who love to sing, to be able to share their gifts. As a result, many of our musical selections range from Unison singing (all melody), to two part, SAB and SATB. The adult choir meets weekly for rehearsals, and participates in the liturgies each weekend and special Holy days, from September through Pentecost. We are a family, with a warm, welcoming, casual atmosphere; a love for God, prayer and music.
CANTORS – Scheduled as needed
Cantors are the soloists and psalmists for individual masses. Cantors may be 5th grade through Adults and must be able to read music and sing clearly. Cantors must audition.
