Congratulations to the 14 members of our Honors Music Theory/Advanced Choir ensemble, The Saint Patrick Schola Cantorum, who recently participated in the Commencement Bay Regional Solo & Ensemble contest.
A Rating of Superior
The group was awarded the highest rating of Superior for their performance of Timothy Michael Powell’s setting of the ancient text, O Magnum Mysterium.
Seventh and eight grade students with at least one successful year of choir can be selected to participate in the year-long Honors Music Theory elective to further their discovery of physics, history, physiology, math, foreign language, literature, theory, religion, and composition through the study of music.
“O great mystery, and wondrous sacrament,
That animals should see the new-born
Lord lying in their manger!
Blessed is the Virgin whose womb
Was worthy to bear the Lord Jesus Christ.”
