Music Ministries

Music making can be a profoundly human experience. Indeed, music is gift from God whereby we express and ponder many aspects of life and faith. When music draws the community of faith into an awareness of God and neighbor, beauty and holiness meet; the aesthetic and the prophetic embrace. 
 
Music renders a genuine, new possibility for facing God, the world, neighbors and ourselves. Through music, a community praises and enacts the mystery of God's self-giving. Music—whose scope, complexity and power can sustain and reveal as can all art—allows us to experience God in human form. Together may we be prepared to receive "what eye has not yet seen, nor ear heard."
 
Many opportunities are available to share your talent. Are you interested in joining our music ministry?  Please contact our Director of Liturgical Music Bill Lieven at (414) 258-2604 ext. 22 - Email
 
 
 
Adult Choir
All are welcome to join our adult choir – you don’t need to be an exceptional vocalist!  We do not require auditions for this choir, but a pleasant voice and a willingness to learn are appreciated.  We enjoy our time together during rehearsals from September through June on Thursday evenings from 7:00 until 9:00 pm in the parish center. The adult choir leads our masses three or four times a month during varying Mass times.  We encourage you to try us out at a rehearsal before making a commitment to our group. We are in need of all voices types and especially tenors and basses. 
 
Cantors 
Cantors sing solo scripture passages or verses to which the congregation responds. High school students and adults are welcome to enjoy this ministry. An audition is required for the cantor ministry at Christ King as well as a basic understanding of singing.
 
Instrumental Group
Adults and high school students are invited to join this ministry which leads our Masses every other week from September through June. Rehearsal begins an hour before the scheduled Mass. We have a range of performers, including guitarists and violinists – and we would love to add more instruments to this ensemble. If you play any instrument, please consider sharing your gift with our community. We are especially seeking percussionists. 
 
Children's Choir  
Our children’s choir, consisting of children in grades 3 through 6, is a very special group. We rehearse on Tuesday afternoons from 4:00 until 5:00 pm starting in late September 9th and continuing through late March 24th. Auditions are not required. . . just bring a willingness to sing! Information is sent home each year through our Christ King School and religious education offices. 
 
Resurrection Choir 
This choir sings during funerals to support those who are grieving through song and presence. There are no auditions or rehearsals for this group. We meet 10 minutes before a funeral, then lead the assembly parts of the liturgy.  This is a great way to serve those in need without a weekly commitment!
