St. Francis is a place to enjoy music, and that begins at an early age! We have two accomplished children's choirs: Joyful Noyz, for ages eight through fourteen; and the Grace Notes, for children aged five to seven.
The Joyful Noyz will normally rehearse each Thursday afternoon from 4:15 to 5 :00 pm and will sing at the 9:00 am liturgy on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month in addition to the major Feasts of Christmas and Easter. The Grace Notes will rehearse at 4:15 pm on Thursdays and perform at various times throughout the year.
Both choirs are directed by renowned professional vocalists. Jeanne and Larry Vote direct the Joyful Noyz. Cathy Justice Lard, a professional soloist who has performed internationally, leads the Grace Notes.
Children will also find a receptive audience for their musical talents at our occasional Family Music Nights and the annual Shrine Mont talent show. Many of our special productions include children. In recent years, we have presented Children of Eden, Joseph and the Amazing Techicolor Dreamcoat, and Godspell Junior.
