The Church of the Assumption's
We have an amazing Music Ministry here at Assumption Church under the leadership of Dr. Neil Stahurski. The Music Ministry is made up of an Adult Choir, a Children’s Choir, and a vibrant Cantor program.
If you sing, play an instrument, or feel that you possess a musical gift or skill that would be beneficial to Assumption, please contact Dr. Neil Stahurski at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also call the Music Office at (412) 766-6660 x 110.
Cantors are qualified vocalists who lead the assembly in its song & prayer. Part of the cantor's liturgical art includes proclamation of the Word during the singing of the Psalms. Music reading is preferred, and an audition with the director of music in required.
Membership in the parish choir is open to high school students (9-12) and adults. Potential members must arrange for an audition with the director of music ministries. Previous choral experience is preferred, but not required. Rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm, September through May. In addition to singing for 9:00am Sunday Mass each week, the Assumption Choir offers sacred music programs throughout the year.
Membership in children's choir is open to children of Assumption Church (parishioners who attend Catholic Schools or homeschool, CCD students, & St. Ambrose Academy students) to join the Children's Choir. All students must audition for the director of music ministries. Rehearsals are held each Sunday at 10am. The children usually sing twice a month for Sunday Mass, from September to May, as well as for a special Christmas Concert in December.
