Ensembles

You fit in. The SJB Music Ministry is full of people just like you. Join Us! Call 847-966-8145.

We’d love to have you join us for the entire season, but if that isn't possible, think about participating for a portion of the season, perhaps just for Advent-Christmas, Lent, Holy Week, the Easter Season, if you wish!

No Auditions! All rehearsals are held in the Church Music Rehearsal Room (MRR) at the East Entrance.

THE MINISTRY OF CANTOR                                 

Parish cantors are selected by friendly audition. Membership in one of the choirs is a good way to receive the training that can prepare one to be a cantor. Cantors are scheduled to sing as available. Cantors are also needed for Holy Days, Weddings and Funeral Masses throughout the year. 

INSTRUMENTALISTS

Opportunities are available for persons who wish to enhance worship at SJB through solo instrumental music. Talented individuals are encouraged to share their gifts.

MUSIC LIBRARIANS

The crucial role of Music Librarian may be for you. No singing or instrumental playing is required. Organizational skills are helpful to keep the library open to all music groups.
