Welcome to the Music Ministry Page
Music Ministry at Immaculate Conception provides lots of opportunities for musicians of all ages (singers and instrumentalists alike) to participate in liturgies. There are a number of choirs: the 8:30 Adult Choir that sings from the front of church, the 10:30 Adult Choir that sings from the balcony, the Youth Choir (Grades 7-12) singing once a month during the school year, the Family Choir (families with at least one child in Grades 3-6) singing four times a year, and the Alleluia Choir that sings for funerals. In addition, we have a combined choir that sings for our deanery-wide concert in the fall and a Confirmation Choir (made up of members of all choirs from Immaculate Conception, St. Mary Parish, and St. Raymond Parish for Confirmation). Our Christmas and Holy Week Choirs often add the college-age and older young people who have sung or played with the parish choirs before or who are new to IC but interested in participating more fully in the liturgy. There is always room for interested musicians to join us! Most of the choirs are currently on summer hiatus (between Pentecost Sunday and the first Sunday after Labor Day), except for the Alleluia Choir, which sings for funerals all summer, too, but you can express interest in joining one of the groups through Facebook or by emailing Colleen at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling the rectory 715-835-9935 and Colleen will get back to you. There is also always a need for cantors, individual singers willing to lead the Masses when choirs are not singing.
You are invited to sing with the Immaculate Conception Youth Choir
The Immaculate Conception YOUTH CHOIR is open to all young men and women, grades 7-12, who are interested in singing once each month at the 10:30am Mass. The first Mass this year is Sunday, October 22, beginning with a 9:000am rehearsal in Room 110 in the school, then proceeding to church to sing at the 10:30am Mass. There will be a snack and drinks at rehearsal, too!
This is the seventeenth year that the young people of our parish have been singing in the Youth Choir. If you are not a parishioner, but would like a chance to sing in a Youth Choir, you are most welcome to join us! The tentative dates for the choir to sing this year are the following: October 22, November 19, December 17, January 28, February 18, March 25, and April 15 (1st Communion at Immaculate Conception). Sign up even if you can’t make every date.
Gabby and Kyle Hanson will be directing the Youth Choir this year. If you would like to share your gift of music, please give Mrs. Garnevicus a call or text at 718-344-1411.
(This is a service opportunity! Some of your parish hours could be earned by singing!)
