Update on the Schola Gregoriana Philadelphia

I wish to extend thanks to all of you who in any way--most particularly through prayer--helped us to get the Schola Gregoriana Philadelphia off the ground.

We have completed our four preliminary rehearsals and have made the selections for the core schola which will now be the permanent group. What we've ended up with, ultimately, is a men's schola that, for the time being, at least, will focus on the chant repertoire. These men are solid and they've all seemed to absorbed that wonderful Solesmes chant sound.

We are ready to field at least a few requests to sing in parishes. We'd like to keep this mostly to Catholic parishes within a reasonable distance of Philadelphia. While we can't exactly start out with an intense schedule, I think we will want to get started sooner rather than later, so drop me a line. If you are a pastor or a music director who would like us to come sing chant in your parish, please contact me at hocket [at] gmail [dot] com.

Keep in touch with us here.
