“Liturgical choir has been a part of my journey here at Marquette since the very beginning, I truly believe that it was no mere coincidence that I was lead to this choir. The friendships that I've made are so special and valuable and I truly feel that each choir member is more than just a person I sing with, but a member of this amazing family. Being able to sing at mass with people who I care deeply about has been a great way to grow in faith as an individual and as a community.”

We each bring our own individual talents, and when blended together, we can make something beautiful that can also inspire others at mass or at our concerts. And through this, we are able to form our own little family where I know I will always feel welcome.”

“The Liturgical Choir is my Marquette family. Even though I'd never been in a choir before arriving at Marquette; this group has welcomed me with open arms. I've met the most amazing people; and choir has allowed me to learn SO much about music, friendship, and faith. Being on council has allowed me to be even more involved with this family that has given me so much while doing something I love to do -- retreats. I'm forever grateful for this amazing opportunity.”

Luiz Gabriel Dias Duarte Machado: Historian/Social Chair

Christina Hochla: Music Librarian

“Liturgical choir is akin to the best pieces of every version of family imaginable. It's forty other people you can count on to stay with you when times are rough and have a grand ol' time with you when things are going well. This choir has formed my years here at Marquette and will, hopefully, be with me for many years to come. They're the reasons for my biggest smiles and heartiest laughs; I'm so thankful for them.”
