“God has bestowed upon his people the gift of song. God dwells within each human person, in the place where music takes its source. God, the giver of song, is present whenever his people sing his praises.” USCCB – Sing to the Lord
Indeed we are truly blessed at St. Ann to have a vibrant and joyful music ministry which enriches the liturgies at weekend Masses and holy days throughout the year. We have been blessed with gifted musicians who willingly share their time and talents with the faith community. Thank you for your support of our music ministry.
Director of Children's and High School Choir /Associate Organist
Cantors lead the congregation in the sung prayer of the liturgy. Cantors should have both an essential ability to learn the music of the liturgy as well as the confidence to stand before the congregation and animate the assembly’s participation. Contact: Michael Podrebarac, firstname.lastname@example.org
Children in 5th - 8th grade will learn the basics of singing and music reading, while taking an active role as musical leaders at parish liturgies. Exceptionally motivated or musically experienced younger children are also welcome. The choir sings at Mass and rehearses throughout the school year.

High School Choir
This group is for singers who are in their high school choirs and want to help add to the beauty of weekly Mass. The high school choir sings throughout the year and on Christmas Eve and Easter Sunday. Rehearsals are on the Saturday mornings before we sing at a weekend Mass. We are always looking for instrumentalists, too! Contact: Amy Cramer, 913-648-1934, firstname.lastname@example.org
Instrumentalists such as flautists, clarinetists and violinists offer their talents during Mass by playing solo pieces or by accompanying the cantor or choir. Qualified instrumentalists should be able to perform publicly with both ability and confidence.
