Saint Matthew’s Festival Singers Auditions

Each year we invite experienced singers of the parish to join the Schola Cantorum for our Advent Lessons and Carols and Christmas Eve Choral Prelude and Mass. Singers must be able to attend all rehearsals for an event but are not obligated to sing on both dates. We look for singers who can read music and have a pleasant voice, previous choral experience, and a commitment to work diligently and cooperatively.

Lessons and Carols

  • Mondays, December 4 and 11 -  7-9pm:  Rehearsal
  • Wednesdays, December 6 and 13 - 8-9pm:  Rehearsa


  • Sunday, December 17 - 7:30–9pm:  Advent Lessons and Carols (6:30pm arrival)

Christmas Eve

  • Monday, December 18 -  7-9pm:  Rehearsal
  • Wednesday, December 20 - 7-9pm:  Rehearsal
  • Sunday, December 24 - 9:15pm Prelude; 10pm Mass  (8pm arrival)
