Music at Guardian Angels is vibrant, joyful, upbeat, prayerful. We believe that active participation in the liturgy is not something to be desired–rather, it is an innate response, something we are called to do in praise and thanksgiving of our Lord! Below, please find information regarding various music-making opportunities within our parish, and we hope you will consider lending your talent, skill, and passion as a member of one of our choirs or cantor ministry. If you have any questions or general interest queries, please contact the parish Director of Music & Liturgy, Dr. Matt Daniels, at the parish office (248) 588-1222 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
Our Adult Choir rehearses and prepares music for Sunday 9 a.m. liturgies. Rehearsals take place on Tuesday nights from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the church. The choir is open to individuals of Confirmation age and older, who bond together over a passion for singing and learning choral music representing a diverse blend of liturgical musical styles spanning contemporary, folk, and traditional. There is no audition required–only a desire to sing and make joyful music for the Lord! “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth!”–Psalm 98
Our parish Children’s Choir prepares music for monthly liturgies as well as Holy Days (Christmas, Easter, etc). Rehearsals take place each Tuesday afternoon from 3-4 p.m. in the church. All parish and school children in 2nd-5th grades are encouraged to join! The Children’s Choir season follows most academic calendars, running between Labor Day and end-of-May. For more information, please contact our Children’s Choir director, Bethane Cabrerea: email@example.com. “I will lift my voice to sing Your praise, O my Strength!”–Psalm 59
Our cantors lead the congregation in musical worship from the lectern. Members of this ministry should be comfortable singing alone in front of large congregations and leading musical worship. Additionally, cantors should have a solid music foundation, pleasant singing voice which lends itself to solo singing, and the ability to read music. Prior experience is not necessary to join; however, a meeting/audition with the director will be required. Please contact Dr. Matt Daniels if you are interested in serving our parish as a cantor: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for stopping by, and we hope you will consider joining us soon!
