Music Ministry: The IC Parish music department consists of our Adult Choir, Choristers,
Adult Bells of Joy, Junior Bells of Joy and Church Musicians.
*All groups are open to anyone in the parish and meet in the school multi-purpose room.
Contact music minister Mr. Jerry Ganiel at 243-3182 or at email@example.com
*All groups also participate in the annual Spring and Advent/Christmas Concerts*
The Adult Choir meets on Monday evenings from 6:00-7:00. They occasionally sing at one of the weekend masses. Several also serve as cantors individually as well as trios and duos.
The choristers are for those in second thru fifth grades. They meet on Wednesdays from 3:00-4:15. The chorister training is loosely based on the Royal School of Church Music program. In addition to singing in two and three part harmony, The Orff program and folk dancing add to the student's overall experience. In addition to singing at mass, they also take turns serving as cantors.
Bells of Joy Ringers
Open to any adult or teenager who would like to learn the art of handbell ringing. Musical reading ability is not necessary. They meet on Thursday evenings from 7:00-9:00. Our ringers have performed at various programs in the area including Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Branson's Silver Dollar City and the shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Illionis.
Junior Bells of Joy
Open to any boy or girl in fourth grade or higher. They are taught at their level with the end result being that they will eventually join the adult ringers. They also join the adults for concerts and masses.
Musicians of any ability are invited to help lead the music for mass. Music will be written and arranged to suite anyone's level of playing. At present, we have keyboard, flute, oboe, bassoon, trumpet, clarinet, guitar, bass, and drums to add to the voices of the congregation.
