Cantors

Cantors perform an essential role in music ministry at Marquette.  These individuals provide musical leadership for all Sunday Campus Ministry Masses at 9:30, 11:00 am and 9:00 pm in the Chapel of the Holy Family and at the 6:00 pm Masses in the Church of the Gesu. Cantors for weeknight liturgies in the Chapel of the Holy Family are drawn from the Music Ministry Team ensembles.

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 in the singing of hymns, songs, and service music.

Cantors are accepted by audition and are required to have the ability to read music, rehearse independently and meet regularly with the director of music. Training and rehearsals will be scheduled throughout the academic year.  For more information, email the director Tom Koester or call (414) 288-3695.
