Campus-chapel musicians tour Long Island
On their annual winter tour, 35 members of the Saint Michael's College Liturgical Ensemble and Singers offered music for Catholic Mass at two Catholic high schools and two churches as they visited Syosset, Hicksville, New Hyde Park and Garden City the weekend of Feb. 3-5. The group was joined by musical director Jerome Monachino ’91, Associate Director of Edmundite Campus Ministry for Liturgical Ministry, who directs 11 instrumentalists (four undergrads, seven alumni) including guitars, keys, two trumpets, trombone, two violins, bass, drums, percussion; and 24 singers (10 adult members, 14 students). The St. Mike’s musicians also were accompanied on their trip by the Rev. Brian J. Cummings, SSE ’86, Director of Edmundite Campus Ministry at Saint Michael’s. Father Cummings celebrated Mass at the four locations.
