The St. Joseph’s Children’s Choir (“Chorus Angelorum”)

Thank you to the members of our St. Joseph’s Chorus Angelorum children’s choir, who have just completed a second full year here at St. Joseph’s.  Twelve young parishioners spent a year working with our music director, Maria Balducci, meeting every other Thursday evening, learning how to sing properly, read music, pronounce Latin, and prepare music for Masses. They finished the year with a pizza and music party this past Thursday, and truly enjoyed spending the year together in prayer and in music.  Thank you to: Kora, Muriel, Francesca, Lila, Carlos, Teagan, Camilla, Ines, Arvin, James, Mariana, and Gaby!  If you have a son or daughter (grades 3-12) interested in singing or joining the choir, please let Maria know, and classes/rehearsals will begin again next September.

Young singers take the stage at Pueri Cantores choral festival and Mass at St. Matthew’s Cathedral – Catholic Standard

Children in Grades 4-12

Please consider a place for them in St. Joseph’s Children’s Choir. Our music director, Maria Balducci, knows very well the challenges of family schedules, with four young children of her own. But she is eager to share her love of the Catholic faith and the liturgy with the young of this parish, and sacred music is an amazing way to draw them in. They will learn techniques of singing, Latin pronunciation and translations, how to read Gregorian chant as well as modern notation, important chants, hymns, and motets of our great heritage of music. Before long, they’ll be teaching their parents!  If you have any questions or schedule concerns email Maria or talk with her after any weekend Mass.
