Music Ministries

Cantor

The ministry of the Cantor is to lead the congregational singing in the absence of a choir. The Cantor must have a firm background as a solo singer and is responsible for much self-preparation under the guidance and help of the music director. Cantors are also needed for weddings and funerals.

 

There is no regular weekly meeting for rehearsal but there is a sign-up for availability for individuals who are interested in this ministry. Due to the very individual and essential nature of this music ministry, singers are expected to audition and be approved of and trained by the music director.
