Another Morning at the Cathedral Basilica

As we did last summer, yesterday we attended Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis to hear Turkey sing with the RSCM St. Louis Training Course. It was a lovely service, and the choir sounded beautiful…just like angels! And no matter how many times I visit the Cathedral, I am always amazed by its great beauty!

We’re already hoping that we’ll have the chance to go back next summer, and maybe even hear more than one of our children in the choir!

Awards on Ascension Day

It’s hard to believe, but the children just wrapped another season (and Turkey’s last), of singing with the Kantorei! As was the case last year, those choristers who completed certain exams received awards. Turkey, Bunny, and Ladybug upgraded the light blue ribbons that accompany their medals to dark blue. Moose received the white surplice this year, which is a huge achievement for him!

The medal is the same (and I still think it looks cool!), and I really love the color of the new ribbon!

I am very proud of how hard the children have worked at singing and learning about music!

A Morning at the Cathedral Basilica

This morning, we had the opportunity to attend Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, and hear Turkey sing with his choir from the¬†RSCM St. Louis training course. The service was interesting…there were some very familiar things in the liturgy, and some very different things, especially in the prayers. The choir sounded beautiful, and I’m very glad we were able to be there!

Awards on Ascension Day

Tonight was the last time the children got to sing with their choir this school year. At the end of the service, awards were given out to the choristers who had completed certain tasks and tests. Turkey, Bunny, and Ladybug all earned not only the white surplice to wear over their choir robes, but also the light blue medal. (Moose has diligently attended with them all year, but declined to take the exam, which is fine…I’m just glad he enjoyed the experience and learned something along the way!)

And a closer look at the medal, just because I think it looks really cool!

I’m very proud of my choristers!
