The Saint Bartholomew Parish has been blessed with many talented musicians who minister at Masses, at various church services and functions, as well as in concert events. Individual descriptions of our "ten choirs of angels" can be found under Ensembles (see top menu on this page). To join one of our choirs, please contact Dr. Bogdan Minut, Director of Music Ministry.
Saint Bartholomew Concert Series
The energy and the intensity of our vibrant music program in the complex context of our parish at large generated the need for our own Concert Series, which functions under the umbrella of the Music Ministry.
Inaugurated on September 11, 2006, our Series presents monthly recitals and concerts from September through May. Of various styles, reflecting the parish’s diverse membership but also its general appreciation for any musical idiom, our concerts feature local musicians, including parish talent and choirs, as well as guest artists. Through the quality of our Concert Series, our Music Ministry promotes the cultural heritage, richness, and image of our parish and the local and regional communities have acknowledged our efforts. Our Series attracts consecrated professionals from across the nation and beyond.
The events of our Concert Series are coordinated by an Organizing Committee and can only take place through the support of our generous patrons and through the hard work of many volunteers. This two-folded support is essential for the existence and the success of our series because all our events are admission free. In addition to the patronage system, free-will donations are welcome during each event. Our Music Ministry benefits the most from the financial contributions through the Concert Series, though occasional support has been directed to parish or local causes.
