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 with an ability to read music, a pleasant voice, previous choral experience, and a commitment to work diligently and cooperatively. Th schedule of rehearsals, shown below, includes most Mondays and Wednesday, beginning Monday, December 3.
