"I will sing with the Spirit and with understanding."
1 Corinthians 14:15
The Saint Michael's Cherub Choir is a fun environment where young choristers are taught the very basics of healthy singing, music literacy, and liturgical formation through songs and hymnody. Children will enjoy singing, playing and moving to music as they prepare for the other levels of the chorister program at Saint Michael and All Angels. We seek to give young musicians an exceptional experience in the context of the the church's liturgical life.
We are proud to offer two Cherub Choir sessions each week. The first is particularly aimed at PreK-K children and the second at K-2, but your child is welcome at whichever is most convenient for your family. The Cherub Choir will prepare singers for participation in Choristers. The Choristers Program is for children in 3rd through 8th grade. This year's Cherub Choir rehearsals will take place every Wednesday beginning August 28 at:
Pre-K - Kindergarten | 3:15-3:45 p.m.
Kindergarten - 2nd Grade | 5-5:45 p.m.
DIRECTIONS: Cherubs will meet in the 2nd Floor Atrium near the Youth Center
Park in the West Lot off of Colgate Avenue, and proceed to the entrance adjacent to the giant "Welcome!" wall. Upon entering those doors, the elevator will be in front of you (steps are around the corner to the left). Take the elevator to the second floor, and turn left when you exit. The Youth Center will be directly in front of you on the left, and that hallway will dead-end a few feet further into the Atrium. See you there!
In addition, we are pleased to offer a collaboration with Saint Michael's Children & Family Ministry to provide snack and Bible story/craft time (and more free time for moms!).
