Music ministry of St. Mary of the Lake strives to cultivate and offer our gifts and talents to God in a way that encourages the spirit of collaboration and community amongst musicians and assembly as we grow in our faith.

Flexible Ensembles

Flexible Ensembles consist of singers and instrumentalists that vary from one week to the next.  During the summer months (June-August) we will meet on the Thursday evening prior to the Sunday when the members are scheduled.  To get involved in a Flexible Ensemble, please fill out the Flexible Ensemble Interest Form.


The choir will resume this fall!  The choir sings a variety of styles of sacred music from traditional to contemporary and everything in between. The choir is open to anyone grade 9 through adults who have an interest in singing. No audition or prior experience is required.

Children and Youth

We are so excited to hear from more students looking to get involved in music ministry! We will offer creative opportunities for young people in our community as we work to build a youth ensemble and children’s choir.


Cantors currently lead the congregation in music at the mass.  It is important for a cantor to have a strong voice, be well-prepared, and inspire the congregation to sing.


Instrumentalists enhance the music and prayer of the community.  Common instruments found at Mass are: guitar, percussion, strings, woodwinds, and trumpet.

If you are interested in serving in any of these music ministry opportunities, please email Jaclyn Schwartz and Rebecca Kaup at [email protected].
