Membership in the Liturgical Choir is open to all undergraduate and graduate students of the University of Notre Dame. Membership is by audition only; singers from all colleges and departments are welcome. Auditions for the 2016-2017 academic year will be held on Sunday, August 21 and Monday, August 22 in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center (DPAC). Limited auditions may also be held at other times throughout the year.
Members are expected to attend all rehearsals, liturgies, and performances for which the Choir is scheduled. Regularly-scheduled rehearsals are 5:00-6:45 PM Tuesday, 6:00-7:45 PM Thursday, and 8:30-10:00 AM Sunday. Additional rehearsals may be scheduled as needed. Tuesday rehearsals are typically held in 329 Coleman-Morse, and Thursday rehearsals are held in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. The Choir sings at the 10:00 AM Solemn Mass in the Basilica every Sunday while the University is in session.
Occasionally, the Choir sings at other liturgies, including Sunday Evening Vespers, weddings, ordinations, dedications and major liturgical feast days. Members are expected to remain on campus for the feast days of Holy Week as well as for Senior Week in May.
