The Christ the King Ensemble is primarily a summer choir that meets sporadically based on member availability. If you are interested in joining us, contact Whitney Somsen at the church office.
The Joyful Noise Children’s choir is open to all 3rd through 6th graders. We meet on Thursdays (except when there is no school) at the Zebedee Center at 3:15pm. We sing for Sunday Mass once a month to help lead the congregation in praising the Lord through the gift of song. Students are welcome to join at any time! Contact Kristen in the parish office for more information.
For a reverent flow of movement in the Liturgy, it is appropriate that the congregation is led in singing by cantors. It is also their role to sing the responsorial psalm and the alleluia verse. Persons with the gift of voice and the ability to make music a prayer are invited to share these gifts with the parish community.
Organ and piano music has always been a form of church music accompaniment. Persons with experience in organ and piano are invited to share this gift with the parish community.
The parish also welcomes instrumentalists of all kinds (trumpet, sax, flute, harp, acoustic guitar, etc....) to share their gifts with the parish community.
The Kingdom Spirit Youth Choir is open to students grades 7-12. Rehearsals are Monday's from 7-8:30PM. Students may join anytime, and the director is flexible with students' busy schedules. The Choir leads the music for one Mass per month, occasionally singing for other special Masses. Prayer, liturgy, music, socializing, and food are all part of this music ministry.
This is the adult choir of St.James Basilica Parish. The choir has 32+ people consisting of singers, accompanists, instrumentalists and sound board technicians. Our members share their talents when their time permits. Easter and Christmas seasons are when we have the largest number of participants. At the present time, the choir practices on Wednesday evenings from 6:15-7:45. If you are interested in joining us, call Kristen Lynch at the church office (701-252-0119).
