The Youth Orchestra performs for the early evening Mass on Christmas Eve and the 9:00 a.m. Mass on Easter Sunday. Keep an eye on the bulletin to know when you can sign up for the orchestra and for practice times. The youth that participate in the band should have at least two years of lessons (or participation in a school band/orchestra) and be confident in their abilities to play harmoniously with other members and the choir.
At Christmas there is a pageant before the early evening Mass at St. John’s on Christmas Eve. Keep an eye on the bulletin to know when you can sign up for the pageant and for practice times.
"I will sing to the Lord, for he has been good to me..." (Psalm 13:6)
Saint John's Adult Choir
The Adult Choir provides the music for the 9:00 Mass at St. John’s. They typically meet every Wednesday at St. John’s for practice at 7 p.m. (They usually practice every other week during the summer.) They meet again at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings to prepare themselves for the Mass. If you would like to be a part of the choir or have questions, you can call Ruth Shuler (our Parish organist and choir director) at home 927-1826.
The Vogies, Chris, Marianne, and Dave (as pictured left to right above) play at the 11:00 Mass at St. Bernard's. Chris is the son of Dave and Marianne. The Vogies play traditional songs in a folk style. Chris plays the bass, Dave the guitar, and Marianne plays both the dulcimer and the autoharp. Dave does most of the singing, but Chris and Marianne provide additional vocal support.
