The music ministry at Saint Anne exists to enable the sung prayer of the whole assembly, as well as to add its unique contribution of harmony and various sonorities of instruments. All of the efforts of the many people who make up our music ministry are oriented toward the goal of raising hearts and minds to God through active participation in music and song. To this end, we have several choirs and instrumentalists.
Adult Choir: The adult choir sings year round at the 11:00 Mass Sunday and on other holy days and holidays as needed. Rehearsals are weekly at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays.
Teen Choir: The teen choir sings year round at the 5:15 Sunday evening Mass. Rehearsals are on Sunday at 4:00 p.m. in the church, preceding the 5:15 Mass. Junior high through high school teens are encouraged to participate. Students of college age are also welcome to join this group or sing with the Adult Choir as your schedule permits.
Children’s Choir: Our Children’s Choir sings on the second Sunday of the month at the 9:00am Family Ministered Mass from October through May. Rehearsals are after school on Monday afternoons. All children of the parish from 2nd grade through 8th are welcome to sing in the Children’s Choir.

Cantors: Cantors are recruited from and rehearse with the other choirs. Anyone interested in cantoring should join a choir that sings at a Mass that suits their schedule.
Instrumentalists: Individuals who are competent in various musical instruments are encouraged to audition.
