Music at Saint Helen

Overview

If you'd like to get involved or want more information, please contact Adrian Soltys: [email protected]

Saint Helen’s music ministry is an ensemble-based program. This means that we strive to have every Mass led by an ensemble of a few musicians. Our four primary ensembles are the Festival Chorale, Hummingbirds, the Sunday Evening Worship Team and Music4Mercy.

Festival Chorale

The Festival Chorale, under the direction of Adrian Soltys, is our adult choir open to all those 9th grade and older. We sing in 4 part harmony and sing a mix of traditional and contemporary music at the 5pm mass on Saturdays and all holy days.

Rehearsals this season will be held on Tuesdays at 7pm beginning September 27th, 2022.

Hummingbirds

The Hummingbirds, under the direction of Megan Soltys, is our children’s choir open to 3rd through 7th graders. We sing monthly at the 8am Sunday mass and other various celebrations throughout the year. Rehearsals this season will be held on Tuesdays from 3:45pm-4:30pm beginning September 27th, 2022.

Seasonal Choirs

Our Festival Chorale and Hummingbirds also accept “guests” to join us for our Christmas Concert and Holy Week/Easter celebrations. This is ideal for those who cannot make a weekly commitment during the year but can commit to 5-6 rehearsals in a row to prepare for our larger events.

Sunday Evening Worship Team

The Sunday Evening Worship Team provides music each Sunday evening for the 6:00pm mass. This casual group rehearses at 5:00pm on Sundays and stays through for mass. It is open to 8th graders and older. Instrumentalists and singers are welcome.

Music4Mercy

Music4Mercy is our auditioned band which provides music for 3 liturgies a weekend. We are always seeking talented instrumentalists and worship leaders to commit to this group. Ability to read charts/sheet music is preferred.

Saint Helen Voices

Do you enjoy singing or playing an instrument? Would you like to grow in fellowship with your Saint Helen community? All adults are invited to sing/play and share ideas on bringing our music through the doors of Saint Helen to the community around us. Join this new group within our music ministry, to share your love of music, offer our collective musical gifts to others and engage with and encourage each other as we journey together in faith and music. If you are interested in this ministry, please contact Cindy Brogan at [email protected]
