The Contemporary Choir serves the St. Bonaventure Community each Sunday at the 12:00pm Mass. The ensemble is made up of several instruments including piano, guitar, drums, violin, and various woodwind and brass. The choir is made up of 10-25 people in 4 sectional voices – Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass and usually sings in four-part harmony. There are no try-outs.
Rehearsals are on Sunday’s at 10:30am in Sr. Brigid's Room each Sunday. We are a Trimester choir, meaning we split the liturgical year into three trimesters – Christmas Choir (from the Sunday after Labor Day to the last Sunday of January); Lent/Easter Choir (from 2nd Sunday in February to Sunday before Memorial Day); Summer Choir (from the Sunday after Memorial Day to the last Sunday in July). The choir takes the month of August and Labor Day weekend off.
The Contemporary Choir is a ministry and not a performance group. Our mission is to entice and encourage the congregation to utilize their voices in the very emotive form of prayer done in singing. Please come and share your talents in participating in this spiritually and emotionally fulfilling ministry.
