The Music Ministry of St. Norbert Parish plays an important role in our Church. It engages the congregation in the liturgy through wonderful music. The choir singing, bells ringing, instruments playing hymns, refrains and acclamations, all help worshippers become closer to God.
At St. Norbert, our instrumentals create an atmosphere of prayer, celebration, repentance, adoration, and meditation. Our choir music, with its combination of words, voices and accompaniment, can move the listeners to a new, spiritual plane. The Music Ministries goal is have parishioners at mass take ownership of the music, singing out, knowing that even imperfect voices become part of a whole, beautiful sound.
The music ministry is open to members of the parish, age eighteen and older, regardless of musical training or musical ability. Our group has both amateurs and professionals who love the church and music. Please consider offering your musical talents, either instrumental or vocal.
Our choir sings at the 11:30 am Sunday Mass, September through early June. The choir sings a wide repertoire of sacred music in both traditional and contemporary style. Rehearsal is on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 pm in the church.
We have cantors who lead the music at all of our weekend Masses. We encourage cantors to be a part of our choir so they will become familiar with our repertoire.
