It’s 2020, and perhaps it’s now time for you to “see” your way up to the choir loft and join the Raphael Choir. The Choir currently consists of sixteen dedicated singers, including two which have only been in the group since last fall. Other members have been climbing the steps (or riding the elevator) for decades now, all because they enjoy singing, praising God through music, and sharing in the experience of friendship with other choir members. We have six sopranos, which are the highest pitched voices of the group. They often get the melody line or a soaring descant. Six ladies provide the ever-so-important alto sound which is the lower pitched women’s voices. They are often the unsung heroines of the group because they often have the most challenging part. The choir has zero tenors, but does have two fellows who are “pseudo-tenors” and who manage to cover about 95% of the required tenor parts without too many voice squeaks. Rounding out the group are the very important basses, of which we have three. These lowest pitched male voices are the foundation of the group, and you can never have too many bass voices supporting the choir. So, if you’re curious to know where you would fit in, stop by the choir loft for a rehearsal or mass and see if the Raphael Choir is for you!
