Music Ministry

Singing is praying. When one sings one prays twice – so said the great Saint Augustine. 

 

 

 

St. Edward’s Music Ministry invites you to join with us as we make music for our Lord. We are so fortunate to have several different musical groups serving our parish: Wednesday Choir (traditional adult choir), Thursday Choir (adult contemporary ensemble), the Choristers, Bell Choir, Family Ensemble, and our Funeral Choir. We also have cantors who lead us in song when choirs are not present. Our newest addition to our music ministry is our Youth Ensemble, under the direction of Andrew Sutton, open to singers and instrumentalists in grades 7 through 10. Please consider becoming a part of St. Edward’s Music Ministry!

The Wednesday Choir, our traditional adult choir, under the direction of Katarina Paley, meets from 6:30PM to 8:00PM in the church. Our Thursday Choir, the Contemporary Ensemble, meets from 6:30PM to 8:30PM in the church. Both choirs welcome singers as well as instrumentalists. The Funeral Choir meets as needed; this ministry is for you if your schedule is flexible and you would like to offer solace to grieving families. The Choristers, our children’s choir, invites children in grades 1 through 8 to join us in song. The Choristers rehearse three Thursdays each month and sing at Mass once a month during the school year. Bell Choir meets at the director’s home. Family Ensemble rehearses as needed. Youth Ensemble rehearsals are most Mondays at 6:30PM in the church.

Thinking of joining us? We hope to see you at rehearsal! Contact any member of St. Edward’s Music Ministry with questions, or contact Mary Jo at 371-7372 X223 or maryjo.brue@stedwardsny.org.
