 DESCRIPTION OF CHOIR, CANTORS AND INSTRUMENTALISTS

The St. Bernadette Choir is our parish’s formal adult choir.  It is made up of men and women who enjoy prayer through song.  This choir is much more in terms of commitment.  The St. Bernadette Choir is a four part choir, responsible for all major events in the parish….Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, Confirmation,  Parish Missions…just to name a few, and many other liturgical events that may arise throughout the year.  The Choir presently sings at the 11:30am Liturgy on Sundays.  The commitment is from September through Pentecost.

The Cantors are responsible for leading our Parish Family in prayer-song throughout the liturgy.  New cantors must audition with a liturgical piece of their choice exhibiting a wide vocal range.  Cantors are required to come together once a month for a rehearsal of music, musical techniques, voice development and appropriate liturgical leadership skills.   A Cantor Certification Program is available through The National Association of Pastoral Musicians.  Call the Office of Liturgy & Music for more information.   (216-696-6525)

The Instrumentalists:  If you are interested in sharing your talents with the Parish on a regular basis, this is a wonderful opportunity.  Learn to play and pray a different type of music that will enhance our parish liturgies and call for the song-prayer from the congregation.  Not all instruments are conducive to liturgical music.

Please call 440-734-1300 at the Parish Office to discuss your individual situation.
