Cantors perform an essential role in music ministry at Marquette. These individuals provide musical leadership for one of the Sunday Campus Ministry Masses: 4:30 p.m. (Spanish) in the St. Joan of Arc Chapel, 6 p.m. in the Church of the Gesu, and 9 p.m. in the Chapel of the Holy Family. Cantors for weeknight liturgies in the St. Joan of Arc Chapel are drawn from the Student Music Teams.

The primary role of the Cantor is to proclaim the psalm and to lead musical portions of the Mass not sung by the assembly. Cantors participate with the assembly and provide visual leadership through posture and gestures in the singing of hymns, songs, and service music.

Cantors are accepted by audition and are expected to have the ability to read music, rehearse independently, and meet with the director of music 1:1 for preparation. Training and rehearsals will be scheduled throughout the academic year. For more information, email the director Andrew Mountin or call (414) 288-3695.
