- Is choir fun?
Yes! It’s a wonderful time of fellowship. If you join, you’ll meet some delightful people. Beyond that, singing is proven to lift the mood, make the singer more alert, and create mental clarity.
- Do I have to have a great voice?
No! You’ll never be asked to perform on your own if you’re not comfortable with that, nor does anyone expect that your talent must rise to that level. There are “solo” voices and “choir” voices. Even if your voice isn’t as strong or clear as maybe it once was, you are welcome. God works in the blending of the voices to sculpt a beautiful sound, so don’t worry if you’re out of practice, inexperienced, or tonally less than professional. If you like to sing, why not give it a try?
- Which voice parts does Holy Family need?
All of them. Don’t worry about that — and don’t worry if you don’t know which voice part is the best fit for you. We’ll help you with that.
- What is the time obligation?
Practices are typically 1 to 1 1/2 hrs (and sometimes 2 hours when we’re approaching Christmas and Easter). We have practices on Thursdays, usually at 7pm. We also warm up at 8:30 on Sunday mornings.
- What if I can’t read music?
No problem! You’ll get a CD of the music, so you can listen at home and in your car. After hearing the tracks several times, you’ll pick it up.
- Whom can I contact for more information?
Email Music Director John Myers at: DanvilleOrganist@gmail.com
- How do I join?
A few ways:
- Just show up! Practices start in September.
