St. Cecilia Choir was suspended during the pandemic, but we are gearing up for Fall 2022! Please contact us if you are interested, we would love to have your child sing!
St. Luke’s is affiliated with the Royal School of Church Music. RSCM has its origin in the church choral tradition of England, and is widely known for its strong format which focuses not only on musical education, but also frames music in the important context of liturgy and Christian formation. The St. Cecilia Choir is RSCM-based and uses the Voice for Life curriculum, which is based upon the modules of vocal training, music theory, sight-reading, musical repertoire, and choir in the context of parish and community. Voice for Life is based on expanding skills, understanding, and exposure to excellence, whereby the children earn medals with different colored ribbons as they progress through each of the five increasingly advanced levels. We also incorporate emphasis on ear training and basic piano keyboard orientation. The choir learns choral music from many eras of church music by composers such as Bach, Mozart, Vierne, and Fauré. The choir sings about once a month in the Sunday morning liturgies. All children in grades 3 and above are invited.
