No. Although the ability to read music is helpful for joining any of our ensembles, it is not a requirement. Several current members are unable to read music, but they learn by ear. We will teach you some basic music reading skills.
Rehearsals take place in the church. Before serving at Mass, warm-ups occur in the music offices, with the exception of the praise groups and the bell choir. Please see each group's individual page for rehearsal times.
