One of the best ways to get personally involved with the music ministry at St. Patrick’s Cathedral is by volunteering to be a Weekday Cantor. Weekday Cantors lead the congregation in song during the liturgy.
Acceptance is by audition. The 15-minute audition consists of:
- previous Roman Catholic cantor experience
- ability to read music
- good ear and vocal technique
- good social skills
- desire to grow in the cantor ministry
Cantors who pass the audition process have the opportunity to serve at one of the weekday midday Masses as well as the 5:30 Mass on Mondays and Fridays, depending on availability. We also maintain an active substitute list.
- simple vocalise
- sight-reading exercise from standard hymns
- basic piano proficiency test
- (optional: a prepared classical solo)
