Music at Sacred Heart

The music program at Sacred Heart Church employs organ, piano, adult choir, children's choir, and cantors to provide sung liturgies that offer the music of the church, incorporating hymnody, various styles of congregational song, chant, choral music, and propers of the mass. 


Adults (and older children) are always welcome to inquire about joining the adult choir, and children (grades 3 and up) are welcome to join the children's choir. 

Mr. Duryea is passionate about teaching young people how to serve musically at mass. If your child is interested in learning to cantor or how to play the organ or piano, please contact Mr. Duryea. Cantor lessons are available for free, with the expectation that the student will cantor for mass. Organ and piano lessons are available.
