The Music Ministry encourages all to develop their musical abilities by joining an OLV ensemble, whether as an instrumentalist or a singer. The desire to praise God through music is the most important qualification; a good ear and a willingness to attend rehearsals and services is also desirable. Knowing how to read music is necessary for cantors and organists; it is not as important for ensemble members. Being part of an ensemble is a great way to get to know each other in an atmosphere of fun and fellowship!
"Whoever chooses music receives a heavenly good. For the sources of this blessed gift is heaven itself, since the angels themselves are musicians." (Harold Owen, based on a poem by Mörike)
