Our choir seeks new singers especially
sopranos, to join their friendly & committed group. They sing at the 11am Solemn Mass on Sundays, Holy Days
and Choral Evening Prayer on the 3rd Sunday of the month. Music from Plainsong through Polyphony, to quality contemporary
music. They rehearse on Wednesday evenings. Basic sight-reading skills are
helpful but not essential. If you are open to developing your musical ability, vocal tuition forms part of rehearsals.
You don’t need to be a Catholic, there are already Christians of other denominations who are members.

11am Mass or contact him via the parish office ... Music page
