We have an ever-expanding music program at St. Bridget’s. We are always welcoming new members, no matter what your talent level is. Check out some of the ways to get involved! Contact Heather Johnson for more details.
ADULT CHOIR: The adult choir rehearses weekly on Thursday evenings from 6:30-8pm at our St. Austin campus, and commit to sing 2-3 times per month. We sing a variety of traditional and contemporary music, accompanied by a variety of instruments. We encourage adults, as well as students, grades 9-12 to join.
PRAISE ENSEMBLE: The Praise Ensemble introduces the community to songs of the praise/worship style, in addition to the more familiar contemporary songs found in the parish hymnals. The ensemble includes members from 8-12th grade, along with adults who enjoy singing this style of music. The group is accompanied by acoustic guitar, bass guitar, keyboard, and drumset. We rehearse once monthly on Tuesdays and sing 1-2 Sundays a month.
SATURDAY SCHOLA: Schola is a small ensemble of singers who commit to singing 1-2 Saturdays a month. We rehearse with the Adult Choir on Thursday evenings from 6:30-8pm, but prefer to attend Mass on Saturday afternoons instead of Sundays.
CHILDREN’S CHOIR: This seasonal group only sings for Christmas Eve Mass. All children, ages 5-18 are welcome to sing. We rehearse after Mass 3-4 Sundays during Advent.
SEASONAL CHOIR: This is a great opportunity for those parishioners who enjoy singing, but cannot commit to weekly rehearsals. You can come to the Adult Choir rehearsal for the weeks leading up to the Christmas and Holy Week/Easter liturgies.
CANTOR/PSALMIST: This role is flexible, depending on whether you are the sole song-leader for a Mass or if you are leading the psalm for one of the ensembles. Audition and training is required.
INSTRUMENTALISTS: We are currently looking for accompanists for weekend and occasional weekday Masses. Contact Heather Johnson if you are interested in sharing your talent at one of our liturgies. Liturgical training is provided. Rehearsal is required.
