Have fun and use your talents to praise God!
Come and join us! We’re having a great time and making friends in the DCC Music Ministry. Come join us for dinner and rehearsal Tuesday nights 6-8 PM in the Falcone-Arena House just off East Campus! Dinner is provided 6-6:30, and rehearsal begins at 6:30. We also rehearse Wednesdays 7-8 PM before Holy Hour in Goodson Chapel, and before each Mass (10 AM in Goodson Chapel for 11 AM Mass | 7 PM in Duke Chapel for 8 PM Mass).
“I can’t make it, so I can’t be a part of music” – We understand your busy schedule, so come when you can! There are four rehearsal times, just choose one – let’s make music!
Even if you cannot attend a rehearsal, we will email you a PDF of the music for each weekend and provide YouTube videos and MP3s to learn the music. So, just study on your own and then show up.
If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to email Andrew Witchger.
Singers: We’re building toward a 30-voice choir with orchestra at each mass and we need your voice!
Instrumentalists: Don’t have your instrument with you? No worries! The DCC has instruments available for you. Haven’t played in a while? Pick up an instrument and we’ll help you along as you get reacquainted with your instrument and (re)discover how powerful it is to express your faith through music. (Fr. Mike is praying mightily that some brass players will join us this year — help us make it a reality!)
