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. 





Voice & Chime Ensemble

​For 3rd grade and older (must have a third grade reading ability)

Practices: Wednesdays from 4pm to 5pm in the Church during the school year.

(Call Florence at 412-372-4577 x 209, leave a message if you cannot make a  practice) 




​For adults.

We practice every Wednesday from 6:30pm-7:30pm from September to May.  We play for many different liturgical celebrations during the year. 



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 call Florence​ in the Liturgy office, 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.
