WEEKLY MASS ENSEMBLES
We'd love to have you join us in leading prayer through song. There are opportunities for every level of time commitment! Rehearsals are in the St. John's Music Room. Creighton students are part of every ensemble and congregation. Take a look to see what might be a good fit for you! Student parishioners and University faculty & staff can stay in the know through the Student Music Ministry list-serv. Non-student parishioners can join the Music Ministry list-serv to stay up to date.

The Saturday 5:00pm Mass Community Ensemble currently includes choir, synth woodwind, guitars, and piano. They rehearse* at 4:00pm on Saturdays. Members include parishioners from Creighton's student body, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as the Omaha community. This is an open-membership ensemble (no audition or attendance policy, just come for rehearsal before Mass). New members are always welcome - we are especially looking for more singers and percussion in this group!

The Sunday 8:00am Mass uses instrumental music and a cantor leading a cappella Mass parts. If you play an instrument or sing and are interested in serving at this Mass, sign up here for a short audition.

The Sunday 7:00pm Massa EvenSong Ensemble is a student-only group including choir, piano, guitar, trumpet, flute, and cello. They rehearse* at 7:00pm on Thursdays and 6:00pm on Sundays. This group helps choose the core repertoire for the 7:00pm Mass, with styles ranging from classical choral pieces to contemporary praise and worship songs. They build community through social events, service events, and prayer together. This group also provides music for Taizé Prayer services. EvenSong Ensemble is especially looking for tenors, basses, and a piano accompanist. Audition dates are September 12 & 15 for the fall 2019 semester in the St. John's music room*.

The Sunday 9:00pm Candlelight Massa Choir is a student-only, student-led group currently including choir, piano, violin, and guitar. They rehearse* at 7:45pm on Sundays. Student leaders in this group choose the music for the 9:00pm Mass, focusing on contemporary praise and worship style. They build community through reflection and social time spent together. Audition dates are September 8 & 15 from 6-8pm in Campus Ministry (Lower Swanson Hall). Candlelight Choir is especially looking for violin,  cello, and an accompanist this year.

We have two Midweek Masses. The Tuesday 9:00pm Massa has a new student-only ensemble this year! They rehearse* at 8:00pm on Tuesday. This is an open-membership ensemble (no audition or attendance policy, just come to rehearsal). New members are always welcome! The Tuesday 9pm Mass Ensemble is looking for any and all students who love music to shape this new community in its first year. If you're interested in being the accompanist for this group, click here for more details. Contact Riley Dunn for more information!

*Rehearsals are in the St. John's Music Room, which is right behind the tabernacle in the church. Go through the rooms on the right or left of the altar (the sacristy or the parish resource room), and you will find a small hallway with the music room in the middle.

aThese Masses take place only during the academic year, when classes or finals are in session the following Monday. They will not take place on Labor Day Weekend, the first Sunday of Fall Break, during winter break, or on the first Sunday of Spring Break.
