Attention Young Singers !!!

Parish music-scholarships for middle school and high school students

Music Scholarships are being offered to qualified singers. Three middle school students and two high school students will be selected to sing in and lead the parish children’s choir and adult choir, respectively.  $300 will be awarded to each middle school student, and $500 to each high school student.  They will also receive proper vocal training from the music director while building up their repertoire by singing sacred music in the choir. The students will be responsible for attending weekly rehearsals as well as singing with the choir for all Sunday Masses from September to May, and the Masses for Christmas and Easter.  (The children’s choir sings once a month and the adult choir sings every week.)

After two years of successful singing in the choir, those singers can also apply for a paid cantor (or junior cantor) position.  Once they are qualified, they will receive private coaching and training from the music director during the summer and throughout the year as needed.

Deadline for the application is April 15; the application form is available at the parish office.

The auditions will be held during the week of April 22nd.  Each candidate is required to sing two hymns acappella (meaning vocal only) for the auditions.
