The Music Ministry at St. Robert Catholic Church is a very active and integral part of parish life. St. Robert Chorale has a rich tradition of singing sacred music that ranges from Gregorian Chant, the classics, to modern composers.
St. Robert Chorale
The choir is accompanied by orchestra at Christmas and Easter and often is involved in community and other area concerts. The Choir made a pilgrimage to Rome In 1988 and had an audience with Pope John Paul II. In May 1999, the choir sang Mozart’s “Requiem” Mass at New York’s Carnegie Hall. In November 2002, the St. Robert Chorale was invited to sing at Holy Name Cathedral and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Chicago.
The St. Robert Chorale provides the musical leadership for the 10:30am Mass each Sunday.

The Cantor Program trains our cantors for music ministry in the church.
Cantors must be able to read music and membership is by audition.
The Cantabile Youth Singers experience choral music that ranges from classical to modern. The music is selected to encourage a deeper relationship with the Lord through musical participation in the Liturgy.
Cantabile Youth Singers is open to student in grades 4th through 8th. There is an informal interview to determine the child’s ability to match pitch (sing back a given note) and for placement into the appropriate section based on vocal skills and experience. The director will meet with the student and parent(s) to explain Cantabile’s teaching approach. The student is also welcome to give a brief performance, although this is not required.
