Festival Choir


Guardian Angels Festival Choir

The Festival Choir is an ensemble made up of the other choirs at Guardian Angels in order to provide music for the highest liturgies of the church year: Christmas, Holy Week, and Easter. This choir will hopefully be augmented by the inclusion of brass for these liturgies.

Any member of the Guardian Angels Music ministry is welcome to join the Festival Choir. However, it is encouraged that any member of this choir have prior choral experience because of the difficulty of music to be sung.

The choir will rehearse for the Christmas Liturgies from December 1st through December 22nd from 7:00pm-8:30pm with an exception on the week of the Immaculate Conception (Dec. 8). The choir will then sing on Christmas Eve at the 10pm mass with carols preceding, and then on Christmas Morning at the 9am mass.

In preparation for Holy Week and Easter, the Festival Choir will rehearse from March 16th through April 6th from 7:00pm-8:30pm plus an additional rehearsal during Holy Week with the brass and organist. The choir will then sing for some of the most beautiful liturgies of the entire church year: Holy Thursday, Good Friday Communion Service, Easter Vigil, and Easter Morning.

If you are a current member of any of the Guardian Angels Choirs or interested in adding to the numbers for these 2 seasons, please contact the Coordinator of Music and Liturgy, Josh Diaz, at jdiaz@gachaska.org or 952-227-4004 for more information.
