Choir highlights planned for 2018-19 include: May 4, 2019: Singing at the Jubilee Mass celebrating the 125th anniversary of the Benedictine Sisters at Bristow, with Bishop Michael Burbidge as celebrant. (Choir members must attend all rehearsals in March and April to be eligible to sing at this Mass.)
The 2nd annual "Poole-ing Our Talents" music day with Epiphany Catholic School in Culpeper.
LHS Choir is open to students in third grade and above who can make a commitment to regular attendance at choir practices. To join the choir, download the registration form below (2018-19 form available soon) and return to the office with payment. We can especially use male voices and upper school students.
Choir practice is held each Thursday, August 30-May 30, after school in the Music Room until 4 p.m. (No choir practices during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter vacations. Also no practice on May 23, the day of the spring musical.) Choir members are expected to attend all rehearsals. It is very difficult to rehearse or prepare for Mass properly with absent voices.
Choir members who are also on sports teams should discuss schedules with Mrs. Fancher and their coaches to accommodate both activities: If there is practice on a Thursday - come to choir practice, then report to practice at 4 p.m. If there is a home game beginning at 4 p.m., come to rehearsal until @3:40 to prepare for Mass the next day. If there is an away game, choir members are excused from rehearsal that day. Choir members who are on Safety Patrol should get a substitute for Thursdays.
