Hi everyone, I just want to be sure you know that we have a boys' choir from the Twin Cities coming to the Cathedral of Saint Joseph this Saturday, December 4, 7:00 PM. Admission is free for this concert. This is a unique type of ensemble that we rarely see in the USA, and may be of interest to you and your kids. The concert will be Christmas-themed. Hope to see some of you there! --Thanks, Jared

[From Jared Ostermann] Hi everyone, I'm passing along this info from Rachael Kramer, who will be running our Cathedral Children's Choir again this year. This choir is for Treble voices (girls, and boys whose voices have not yet changed). The children sang for two cathedral liturgies last year, and both were successes, with many positive comments from those in attendance. We're hoping to build on that success this year, with a more complete rehearsal and liturgical schedule throughout the school year (culminating in their debut at the regionally-broadcast TV Mass). Those who were already in choir last year have already received emails; however, here is the info from Rachael in case you might be interested: [From Rachael Kramer] Good afternoon, Below is all of the information you need regarding our auditions for the 2021-2022 ensemble. Auditions are super simple - I check their range; they sing either Happy Birthday or Twinkle Twinkle (their choice); and then I play some pitches on the piano and they sing them back. The one change we have this year is rehearsal time. With some scheduling restrictions, our best option was to offer a different time than last year. The children's choir will meet for rehearsals on Wednesdays at 9:30-10:15 am in the St. Joseph school choir room. I realize some may have conflicts, but I hope it works for many of you. Auditions Auditions will be Wednesday, Sept. 8 at 9:00-10:30 am in the St. Joseph school choir room Ensemble Eligibility: Auditions are open to children age 9 and up for females and unchanged male voices. (If you're unsure if your child is experiencing a change in voice, you can still sign up for an audition and I can help make that determination.) Due by Sept 7: Sign up HERE for a 5 minute audition time slot. Fill out this Audition Application so I have up to date information for auditions Audition Practice Materials (a copy will be provided in the audition) Children's Choir Schedule: Rehearsal and Liturgical Schedule 2021-2022 If the rehearsal times work for you but the audition time does not, please contact me and I can see if it's at all possible to schedule another time. My aim is to solidify our roster by Sept. 15. I hope this answers all of the questions you may have! If you still have questions, let me know at: Kramer.Rachael.A@gmail.com. God Bless, Rachael Kramer
