St Rose Choir September 11, 2022
COME JOIN THE CHOIR - SING A NEW SONG UNTO THE LORD!
The St Rose Choir (9:30am mass) will resume its musical
activities for the 2022-23 season, with rehearsals beginning on
Thursday evening, September 8th, 7pm, and Sunday masses on
September 11th. The choir, which consists of approximately
25 members (sopranos, altos, tenors, basses), is directed by St
Rose Music Director/Organist Joseph Jacovino. Rehearsals and
Masses take place in the newly constructed choir loft. The
choir sings arrangements of hymns, psalms, chants, and anthems
designed to embellish the music at the 9:30am Sunday mass, as well
as at special events and religious holidays. The choir plans
all of its repertoire months in advance, and all music is made
available on a choir website, for members to listen to and
practice. The choir greatly enjoys its musical ministry of singing
praise to God, and the continuous fellowship of its various
members. For more information, contact Joe Jacovino,
Director, at: email@example.com
Or stop in the choir loft after any mass.
