This community of 20 – 40 singers has had a rich history spanning three musical directors starting with Michael Ward in the 1980’s, Laurence Rosania in the 1990’s and John Uehlein since 2000. Singing a wide range of different styles including classical, contemporary, Gregorian and gospel, the choir is primarily a liturgical choir that gathers for Sunday morning worship, but it does present concerts from time to time, usually with social justice or liturgical themes. Past presentations include: “A Lenten Journey,” “Lessons and Song for Peace,” “Songs for the Earth 1,” “Songs for the Earth 2,” “A 100th Mary Lou Williams Birthday,” and of course, our annual “Christmas Lessons and Carols: Sharing the Joy!”
The Xavier Choir meets virtually on zoom Thursday evenings for rehearsal from 7:00pm – 8:30pm. We prepare music for the Xavier Virtual Recording Project for use in live-streamed liturgies as well as virtual concerts and all major Holy Days, Christmas and Easter.
We are looking for members in all categories: soprano, alto, tenor and bass
