Music Ministry

Church of the Ascension is blessed
with a talented and spirit-filled Music Ministry!


Choir Director / Music Minister: Diane Nestor (click to email or call 495-1886 x413)


Choir:  Rehearsal at 7pm on Thursdays in the Sanctuary

Instruments:  Rehearsal twice each month; email Diane for schedule or audition request. 


Audition Process

Any new instrumentalists must audition with Diane. The audition is not a guarantee to play, as the music is High School Intermediate to Difficult level. Instrumentalists must be able to play in all key signatures, know all note values, and be able to count in a variety of time signatures. Audition times can be set on weekends after the Sunday liturgy. You need to bring a prepared piece with sheet music and you may be asked to sight-read something.

Adult Choir: New members are welcome, ages High School and above. Choir members are expected to rotate Masses and may be asked to attend specific Masses for holidays, celebrations or other events. Interesting in being a Cantor? Contact Diane.

Youth Choir: starting in Fall 2019!


Special Events & Concerts

Our Choir and Instrumentalists are invited to participate in seasonal concerts and events as scheduled by the Choir Director. Additional rehearsals may be added and will be required for participation.
