The St. Joseph’s Children’s Choir (“Chorus Angelorum”)
The St. Joseph’s Chorus Angelorum joined with members of the St. Peter’s school choir to sing for the first Sunday of Advent evening Mass at St. Peter’s. The two choirs, both members of Pueri Cantores (the student choral organization of the United States), received encouragement and support from board members of the Papal Foundation who were in town for their annual meeting, as well as both parish communities!
The St. Joseph’s Chorus Angelorum (SJCA) children’s choir will join our St. Joseph’s Choir this Sunday, Gaudete Sunday, for the 10:30am Mass. We rejoice in hearing these young voices lead us in praising God!
Children in Grades 4-12
Please consider a place for them in the newly forming 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.
