Music at St. Michael's
Music is a major part of worship at St. Michael & All Angels. Most services have some music, whether it be the full choir accompanying our Æolian-Skinner Pipe Organ at the 10:30 AM Solemn Mass, or the congregation singing at our Family Mass, accompanied on guitar. Guest musicians often accompany the choirs. Music during the High Mass ranges from familiar hymns to classical pieces to original music.
Music is intimately bound with the proclamation of the Word, an opportunity for us to express through hymns, anthems and liturgy those feelings that are often difficult to express with words. The music of the Christian faith is meant to deepen and enrich our worship experience. Music has the ability to make us of one heart and voice, a natural response of a living faith. Those who are called to presenting music for worship have the important task of leading worshipers toward greater heights of inspiration and beauty, to the glory of God.
The St. Michael and All Angels Choir sings at the 10:30 AM Solemn Mass on most Sundays, at feast day Masses, and during Holy Week.
Dr. Chris Fresolone serves as Director of Music. In addition to his work at St. Michael’s, Chris teaches choir, band, piano, and music theory at the Gregory School. His previous work in churches includes service at Christ Presbyterian Church and Casas Adobes UCC Church. Chris is a composer and arranger as well.
Weekly choir rehearsals are Tuesdays at 7:00 PM and on Sunday mornings. We are always looking for new voices!
