Unlike other ways of getting involved in the community, this is a ministry that requires specific skills in order to be able to take part. Since the group is small, each individual singer needs to be able to hold a tune while singing in parts. In order to keep up with the pace of 3-4 “new” songs most weeks and because of the way the choir works, you do need to have a basic understanding of music theory and be able to read sheet music.
Choir practice is every Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. plus a short run-through before Mass (which usually means 9.00 a.m. on Sunday).
However, there are many choir members who are not in Bonn every week/weekend, so that what the commitment boils down to is attending the Friday practice if you are going to sing at the following Mass on Sunday.
It is not necessary to be available to sing at every Mass in order to join the choir.
If you are interested in joining the choir – either as a singer or as a musician – please contact either our choir leader Markus or our parish secretary Martina.
