Primarily composed of undergraduate students, the Saint Michael's College Liturgical Choir and Ensemble also proudly includes members from the wider worshipping community. The main function of the group is to facilitate sung prayer.
Under the direction of Jerome Monachino '91, the group is characterized by an original, eclectic musical style utilizing African, Latin American, and Irish flavors to compliment traditional hymn singing. The Liturgical Choir celebrates prayer in song at most Sunday liturgies and at all major feasts of the liturgical year.
For more information, please contact Jerome Monachino.
