St. Regis Parish is blessed to have many talented cantors. If you are interested in becoming a Cantor, please contact Florence in the office of Liturgy and Music at 412-372-4577 x 209 or [email protected].
The most common instruments used at a Mass or other Liturgies are: flute, trumpet, guitar, violin, oboe, and sometimes rhythm, such as a maraca, sticks, small drum, finger cymbals, etc. The music is given to the instrumentalist for any piece and when the piece is mastered by the instrumentalist, a practice is done in the church. Most of the music is easy and usually are simple descants and melodies. Please contact Florence in the office of Liturgy and Music at 412-372-4577 x 209 or [email protected], if you want to try some of the pieces on your instrument. Florence will give you the music, then go over it with you, and finally, will schedule a rehearsal with you in the church when you have the piece prepared.
