Resurrection Choir


The Resurrection Choir and Orchestra sings the great Masses of Mozart, Haydn, Schubert and more. We rehearse on Monday evenings from 7:30-9:30 pm in the church hall between September and May. We begin rehearsals after Labor Day. We sing several times each semester for many of the special feast days at St. John Cantius. If you’d like to volunteer to sing in the choir contact Fr. Scott Haynes, SJC, for an audition. Call 312.243.7373 x 111 or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). We are excited for the opportunity to go to Austria in 2020 to sing a Mozart Mass with the Salzburg Cathedral Choir and Orchestra during the “Oberammergau 2020” pilgrimage with Peter’s Way Tours (http://www.petersway.com & 800-225-7662).

Magnificat Choir


The Magnificat Choir, comprised of high-school-aged members and guests of SJC parish, is seeking new members!  The choir sings awesome music representing many styles for Masses throughout the year.  It’s a great learning experience, though there’s ample time for friends, social activities, and special opportunities, such as our upcoming June 2018 musical pilgrimage to California.

The group begins its fall schedule with special “open-to-all” rehearsals and activities on Saturday, Sept. 9th and Saturday, Sept. 16th.  Please join us Saturday, Sept. 9 at 9:30 AM for an open rehearsal, followed by a short trip to sing at a service in memorial of aborted unborn children.  Also please consider attending an 9:30 AM open rehearsal on Saturday, Sept. 16, with a party and social at the church later that afternoon.

Please contact choirmaster Jonathan Rudy (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)) or Fr. Nathan Caswell (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)) with interest or for more information.  The year is planned, and it promises to be excellent; now all we need is you!
