Currently we have three main types of accompanists at our Masses: organ, piano and guitar. Our accompanists must be able to read music and sight read at an intermediate – advanced level or in the case of the Praise Band, have excellent ears and pick up songs very quickly. Their main purpose is to accompany the choir and cantors in the hymns and other sung parts of the Masses.
We are always on the lookout for talented instrumentalists who wish to donate their time and talents to our parish. Opportunities to play could vary from playing solo preludes/postludes, to joining an ensemble regularly. We also welcome strings, woodwind and brass players to join the choirs periodically for special liturgies.
