Choir Annual Report 2007

by Choir Director Maria Vrame

This last year went fairly well for the choir. Our Sunday rehearsals have been OK, not as great as I would like it, but attendance is a little better than on Thursday nights. There have been a lot of conflicting things going on after church which eat into our rehearsal time. Usually we only practice for an hour. It is an extra sacrifice of time for the choir members who all lead busy lives and are doing more than one job at the church. We continue to learn new music from different jurisdictions to keep the music varied and reflective of our parish. We’ve sung for at least four weddings this last year and numerous baptisms. Fortunately, we’ve had no funerals and hope that trend continues. In August I attended one day of a 3 day seminar by PSALM for choir directors and singers. I found it informative and enjoyed meeting other directors from around the country and find generally we are doing better than most. So that was encouraging. I am also teaching music in the Sunday School classes, Kdg. thru middle grades. Since I can only spend about 20 min. a month with each class, we use a tape for review. It is amazing how quickly our students learn the music (and some rather difficult). We are pleased to hear the congregation singing along with us and have had people visiting from other parishes remark on how nice it is to hear congregational participation. After all the Liturgy is the work of all the people, so please continue singing along. We can always use more singers, so if your voice can match up with the notes and you like to sing, please see me. To sing in church is to be praying twice.
