Cantor School

The Cantor School offers three sequential levels of liturgical musical instruction. The school was created out of concern for beauty, to ensure that cantors are well prepared and knowledge of their responsibilities.

Cantor School

Founded in 2011, the Cantor School is three-year vocal liturgical course. The school is intended for beginning, intermediate and advanced vocalists who seek to improve their qualifications in the field of liturgical music.
 
The school was created to maintain the beauty of liturgical singing and to strengthen the role of the cantor as it is described in Church documents. Students must be knowledgeable of liturgical music and have musical skill to be accepted. Once accepted, students have the opportunity to learn from musical experts. Instructors are professionals and share an enthusiasm for their work.
 
Who is a Cantor?
 
The cantor is a believer and a practitioner of liturgical vocal music. By singing, he or she guides others through the liturgy. He is professional in the field of liturgical music. He can choose the repertoire for the Mass, and can sing hymns, psalms and readings, particularly within the context of the Liturgy of the Hours and the Holy Mass. He is competent in polyphonic choral settings, can identify intervals and is confident in leading a congregation.
  
The cantor is not a performer; he or she serves others by guiding a congregation. His place is among the people as a participant in the liturgical assembly. When there is no choir, the cantor begins each individual song and through his attitude he urges the faithful to actively participate. His disposition congregational unity and commitment to the liturgy.
