Choir Council

2011-2012 Liturgical Choir Council members:

Allie Wolf (President)
Class: Senior
Major: Biomedical Sciences/Pre-Med, Anthropology
Section: Soprano

“Liturgical Choir practice is the ultimate getaway. It is a community and place where I can forget my schoolwork and focus on God. Choir has given me a sanctuary to enjoy the gift of music, work as a team player, and praise the Lord. I look forward to giving back to Liturgical Choir what it has given me as a member of the council.”

Ali Schoon (Vice President)
Class: Senior
Major: Biomedical Sciences/Pre-PA, Psychology
Section: Soprano

“Liturgical Choir has given me the opportunity to combine my love of God with my love of music. Singing at Mass with the rest of the Marquette community has strengthened my faith. Liturgical Choir contains a wonderful group of people and I feel like I have found a family away from home. We also have a lot of fun during practice, Mass, and service projects.”

Emily Shakleton (Secretary)
Class: Senior
Major: Secondary Education and English
Section: Soprano

“It is difficult to sum up what Liturgical Choir has done for me in just a few lines; I have been deeply affected and connected by it for my three years at Marquette. The choir has been a solid foundation for me since the start of my freshman year. I have been involved in many activities and jobs on campus, but have stayed committed to nothing as long as this choir. Liturgical Choir provides service opportunities, challenging repertoire, retreats to bond with other members, and a chance every time we meet to grow my faith in an encouraging environment where I feel I can be myself. This is a group that truly praises God with their hearts and their lips!”

Maggie Kreutter (Treasurer, Social Chair)
Class: Junior
Major: Biomedical Sciences/Pre-Med
Section: Alto

“Liturgical Choir is a group that gave me a sense of belonging to the Marquette Community. Everyone involved is passionate about both the music and worship aspects and that is a rare and beautiful combination for college students. Spending time singing with amazing people every week is an awesome break from the daily stresses and something to consistently look forward to.”

Maggie Kollar (Co-Retreat Chair, Co-Historian)
Class: Junior
Major: English and Secondary Education
Section: Soprano

“Liturgical Choir is one of my favorite parts of Marquette University. It is where I am able to use my gift of music to praise God, and to help others do the same. We get to sing beautiful music and raise our voices to God and change many people's experience of the Sunday mass. Lit Choir is also where I have made my closest friends. The entire choir is more of a family to me than any other group on campus, and I can't imagine what my life would be like if I hadn't joined.”

Mark Hampton (Co-Retreat Chair, Co-Historian)
Class: Junior
Major: Business Finance
Section: Bass

“My family has a special quote, ‘He who sings, prays twice’. Liturgical choir is a way for me to become closer to God in my faith. The faith family I have through choir is unlike any I have ever been involved with and singing at mass brings great joy to me knowing that I am helping to increase other’s experience in growing closer to God as I am doing the same.”

Lizzie Anderson (Service Chair)
Class: Sophomore
Major: Biomechanical Engineering
Section: Soprano

“I joined liturgical choir last year as a freshman and have never regretted the choice for a moment. It has given me a creative outlet in the midst of all my science and math classes, but most importantly, it has been an opportunity to meet so many incredible people that have encouraged me in my faith and been there to support me in all the rough times as well as the great ones. It truly is an awesome experience that I would encourage everyone to try.”

Rachael Taylor (Section Leader Liaison, Alto Section Leader)
Class: Junior
Major: Biomedical Sciences/Pre-PA, Psychology
Section: Alto

“I've heard so many people say that Liturgical Choir is like a family, a home away from home. And while I agree that it sounds really cheesy, I actually agree with it, 100%. Being in Liturgical Choir means more to me than singing in Mass on Sundays or for our concerts, it means more than leading the congregation in a beautiful worship experience. To me, it means showing our love for one another, and most importantly for our Lord, in using the voices He alone has given us to praise Him.”
