On the 20th of November 2010, Cantor Club teamed up with the St Aloysius' Father's Choir to perform a benefit concert for the school's Philippines emersion
program where boys from Years 10 and 11 spend a little over three weeks building homes for squatters, living with orphans, clothing and feeding street people, sharing the lives of indigenous people in the hills, and spending time with inmates in the National Penitentiary.
The concert was held in some of the newly built facilities at St Aloysius' and proved to be a huge success.
Thanks to all who performed and for The SAC Father's Choir for inviting us along.
Last weekend our parish Cantor Club sang at a function at St Aloysius College. I have seen two letters that subsequently were address to our family and youth music minister, Ben Marshall.
Ben conducts the Catholic Community of North Harbour Cantor Club: a group who like to sing and are willing to perform publically on behalf of the parish.
Sorry it's been a bit quiet on Cantor Club front for a while. After getting back from overseas there's been plenty to catch up on, but am keen to really get things up and running for us!

Next Monday night Vocal Coach Emily Edmunds will be coming in to work with us. Going through vocal techniques and group work. Please bring along any sheet music/scores which I have given you.
The Cantor Club who performed on the 5th Sunday last month were fantastic. It was such a great mass and the music was the main reason. It was a small crew but the harmonies and the sound they produced was so beautiful and strong.
Very much looking forward to the next 5th Sunday coming up in October. Also the dream is to get Bohemian Rhapsody in full to be performed for a Music Extravaganza Christmas Concert in St Cecilias Church at the end of the year.
Lastly, please enjoy Ben's YouTube of the week this week.
No watermelons were hurt in the making of this film.
Look forward to seeing you NEXT Monday night.
