The Adult Choir is open to those ages 18+. This group provides music at the weekend liturgies using a variety of styles of music. The choir members may choose which weekend Mass they will regularly attend. Rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 until 9:00 pm. If you are interested, please contact the Music Director.
The Children’s Choir objective is to teach children the language of music and artistic expression within a Catholic Christian faith context. The choir is actively involved with the spiritual and liturgical life of the Church. The Children’s Choir is open to those of age 7-12 and currently rehearses on Wednesdays from 6:00 – 6:45 pm. Those interested in the Children’s Choir, please have an adult contact the Music Director.
Instrumental Ensemble Music
Instrumentalists of any sort are invited to be involved at any of the weekend liturgies. After coordinating with the Music Director, instrumentalists usually prepare on their own and arrive early to the liturgy in order to coordinate with the accompanist and cantor. New accompanists on the piano or organ are always needed. Consider sharing your gifts with your parish community. Anyone interested, please contact the Music Director.
Music Ministry at St. Bernadette’s is a volunteer ministry. All are welcome; however, there will be a short, private audition process. Vocalists will be asked to match pitch, demonstrate their vocal range, and sight-read a short example with accompaniment. Instrumentalists will be asked to play a prepared piece and sight-read a short example. This process is not intended to deny participation, but only to gauge a person’s strengths and abilities.
Our praise band consists of a mostly adult band with singers form late middle school through high school. We play and sing monthly and rehearse on Tuesdays from 7:00-8:30 from September through May. We encourage anyone interested to contact the music director as we are always in need of help.
