10:30 Liturgical Music Ensemble

Have you heard that there is a  Liturgical Music Ensemble at the 10:30 mass comprised of voices and instrumentalists high school aged and beyond? This is an opportunity for you to share your musical gifts with this parish as we worship in joyful and spirited song! The ensemble rehearses Sunday mornings at 9am. Richard Putorti, Ensemble Director, has formed and led young music ensembles in parishes throughout the Albany Diocese, has directed youth music for the Christian Leader Institute (CLI), led the music for the Diocesan Youth Rally in 2006, and founded a summer music program for catholic youth, Music and Liturgy at Pyramid Lake. Richard is a teacher and a composer and is excited to begin his 2nd year here at the parish and to see what God creates here in the parish when the musical talents of our young people come together to minister.  Also, younger voices will have the opportunity to share their gifts in singing prelude music with our Youth Choir that sings before our Family Liturgies throughout the year.  Youth or parents please contact Richard at smcmusic@nycap.rr.com or call the parish office to express your interest in music ministry at the 10:30 mass at St. Mary’s Church.
