Nativity has many talented voices and instrumentalists and has numerous choirs to lead the congregation in its musical expression of prayer.  In addition to Sunday Masses, the choirs sing for Christmas, Holy Week, prayer services, Confirmations, Thanksgiving, and other feasts and special events.  Members of all choirs should be able to make a commitment to attending most of the rehearsals and to singing at Mass most Saturdays or Sundays.

Children's Choir

On hold until further notice

The Nativity Children’s Choir is open to students in grades 3-8.   They lead the congregation in worship once a month, rotating between the 9:00 am and 11:00 am Sunday Masses, featuring a range of traditional and contemporary worship music.  The Children’s Choir also provides music for the 3:45 Christmas Eve family Mass.  There is no audition process and musicianship skills are not required for members, just a willingness to try new things and learn.

Rehearsal is twice a month on Monday evenings.

Family Choir

The Family Choir leads the music at the 5:00 p.m. Saturday Vigil Mass and may participate in other celebrations throughout the year.  The Family Choir was founded in 1999 and is symbolic of the diversity of the ‘Family of Christ’ here at Nativity. A variety of instrumentalists accompany the choir.

Membership in the Family Choir is open to anyone who would like to join others in singing the Lord’s praises.  No auditions are necessary.  Children who are old enough to participate meaningfully are welcome but must be accompanied by a parent.

Folk Choir

The Folk Choir leads the music at the 12:45 pm Sunday Mass.  The Folk Choir also participates in special celebrations that occur during the Church Year– including Christmas Eve, Holy Thursday and Easter Sunday.  The Folk Choir was founded in 1996. Our primary mission is to encourage congregational participation in the singing at mass. We love to enhance the hymns and songs by adding SATB harmonies, as well as our own improvised parts. The Folk Choir enjoys performing Christian music of various styles and times—from ancient to modern!

Membership in the Folk Choir is open to singers and instrumentalists with a heart for ministry, high school age and up.  Auditions for singers are not necessary, but a “good ear,” some previous choir experience and an ability to blend with the other singers would be ideal. Experienced Instrumentalists (guitar, flute, recorder, violin) interested in joining are asked to please consult with the director about openings in our band.

Rehearsal is Sunday prior to the 12:15 pm Mass.
