During this time we are only able to utilize instrumentalists and Cantors.
A number of instrumentalists assist with music for Masses and services at St. Mary/St. Charles. Currently, these include flute, clarinet, oboe, saxophone (alto & tenor), trumpet, French horn, cello & double bass. Ability to read music is required as rehearsals are brief and sight-reading is often required.
Cantors lead the congregation in sung prayer. In addition, cantors are often called upon to sing as soloists. Ability to read music, carry a tune and a pleasant voice are all necessary requirements for the role of cantor.
