Children's Choir

 

This choir is made up of children in the 3rd through 8th grades. Rehearsals are on Tuesdays at 4:30 PM. The choir sings once a month at the 10:30 Mass.  They also sing on Christmas Eve, Easter Sunday, and other feast days and special occasions. 

Funeral Choir

The Funeral Choir leads the congregation at parish funerals most of which are held on weekday mornings.  There are no regularly scheduled rehearsals.  If you enjoy singing and are available on weekday mornings with just a few days' notice, this choir is for you.

Cantors

The Cantors of Saint Matthew Parish range in ages from grade 5 to adult. Excellent vocal skill and confident leadership skills are required.  Training is provided on an individual basis and is ongoing. Cantors are scheduled to sing once or twice a month. Scheduling is flexible depending on each person's availability.

Instrumentalists

Anyone who plays a wind, brass or string instrument is invited to participate in the instrumental section of our Music Ministry.  Instrumentalists rehearse with the Adult Choir.  These musicians must be proficient on their instrument. Strong sight reading ability is helpful as well as the ability to be musically flexible. Instrumentalists are given music in advance and participate as their schedule permits.
