FALL OF 2021 WILL SEE THE RETURN OF OUR MUSIC ENSEMBLES
That means Bel Canto and Cantate are back – yay! However, we have made some adjustments to the rehearsal/performance schedules that we hope can streamline family schedules and keep our ensembles accessible!
Young Voices becomes Sunday School Singers!
As part of our return in the Fall, Music Ministry will be incorporated into Sunday School each week for children ages PreK-1st Grade. This will take the place of the Young Voices Choir, which traditionally began in January.
Cantate on Sunday mornings
In an effort to provide a more open after-school schedule for families, Cantate Choir rehearsals are moving to Sunday mornings!
Rehearsals will run from 10-10:40am – essentially between the 9 and 10:30 services. Children that attend 9am Sunday School can go straight to choir after Sunday School gets out and children that attend 10:30 Sunday School will do the reverse – head straight to Sunday School after choir.
This year, Cantate will have slightly fewer performance weekends/services, including ONLY the Sunday School Christmas program, NOT Christmas Eve.
Bel Canto moving earlier on Wednesdays
Mount Calvary has great programming available for youth and we want kids to be able to experience any and ALL of those opportunities. In order to aid in that, Bel Canto rehearsals will move to 5pm on Wednesday evenings. This will allow members of Confirband and middle school age choristers to head to Confirmation worship after rehearsal (with a brief stop for pizza downstairs if they want – yes, even middle school singers!) and allow other high school choristers the opportunity to attend the Vine after rehearsal.
Bel Canto will have a few additional Sundays added to their schedule, including a Fall worship weekend.
