The Members of the Adult Choir/Music Ministry are proud to present another musical gift to the people of St. Sylvester Parish. While some Covid 19 restrictions are beginning to loosen up, it has been over a year since the choir has been able to sing together for mass and it still may be some time before we can gather safely to rehearse and perform. So we have done the next best thing – another “virtual” recording. Under the direction and guidance of Therese and Clark Blanton, Music Ministry members recorded their own choral parts and submitted them to be mixed together to create this beautiful and familiar piece titled Precious Lord, Take My Hand. It is presented in two forms. First, as an audio recording for your listening pleasure. You might want to add this to your music playlist! Second, it is presented as a music video with beautiful pictures to accompany the choir singing.

This is our musical gift to the St. Sylvester community. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed preparing it for you. You may also want to check out our first musical offering from Easter – The Cross of Jesus which is still available for viewing on the website.

Once we are able to gather once again in community with one and other, just a remider that the Adult Choir sings “most” weeks at the 11:00AM mass. The Adult Choir is open to all teens and young adults (high school and college age) and adults who enjoy all styles of music. The repertoire of music for this group calls for soprano, alto, tenor, and bass voicing for rich harmony. We are always welcoming of new members, especially altos and men for balance.

Read this: You do not have to read music. There is no audition. The only requirement is a desire to sing in a friendly, non-threatening liturgical setting. We’re all learning together! Very rewarding!
The Adult Choir rehearses on Tuesday evenings at 7:30PM in the church, with additional rehearsal time Sunday at 10:15AM on the following dates:
Come join the Adult Choir family. It’s free! It’s captivating and invigorating – you’ll see!
The Adult Choir is under the direction of Therese Blanton.
