The Adult Choir is the primary choir at St. Joan of Arc Church and features a variety of ages. They sing at the 10:00am Sunday liturgy every week from September to Pentecost Sunday.
Rehearsals are weekly on Tuesday evenings from 7:30-8:30pm (7:15-8:45pm during seasons leading to Christmas and Easter) with a warm-up on Sunday at 9:15am in the Church. Please check the adult choir schedule for the times and dates of rehearsals and masses.
Prior choral or other musical experience will be helpful. Training will be provided during rehearsal. The average size of the ensemble during the Sunday liturgy is currently 10-12 singers.
The Cantor Guild consists of animators/singers from our choirs who have a special gift of leadership. They sing at regularly scheduled weekend liturgies throughout the year. We currently feature 8 people on our cantor roster and always welcome new interest.
Cantors, please check the Cantor Schedule and Liturgy Sheets for the times and dates you are scheduled to sing.
The Children's Choir is designed for all 3rd through 8th graders. The Children's Choir rehearses 2 weeks prior to Christmas and Easter on Thursday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm in the Church pending participant availability.
The Children's Choir sings at the 4pm Mass in Church on Christmas Eve and at the 12pm Mass on Easter Sunday. The Children's Choir is also used for our celebration of First Communion. Singers and instrumentalists are welcome from both the Parish/PSR community and from the Day School.
Student cantors and instrumentalists from the St. Joan of Arc Day School join us for weekly Tuesday morning mass at 9AM.
The Resurrection Choir consists of those who have mornings free, as our parish funerals are generally scheduled at 10:00am or 11:00am weekdays and Saturdays. As one might expect, the group features predominately retired persons and it is a wonderful opportunity to aid the grieving in their hour of need. Members of the Adult Choir participate in the Resurrection Choir as well. Members on the Resurrection Choir roster will be contacted by our Director of Music at the time a funeral is scheduled and are expected to meet fifteen minutes prior to the scheduled beginning of the funeral in the Church. Ensemble size varies with each funeral liturgy depending on the availability of participants.
