Knights in Harmony Children’s Choir Set to Perform in St. Cecilia Sing
(ROYAL OAK, MI) November 9, 2015
Mrs. Sharon Dixon, Principal of Shrine Catholic Grade School, is pleased to announce the upcoming performance of Knights in Harmony at the St. Cecilia Sing, conducted by Choir Director, Megan Warzecha. They are the first children’s choir to ever perform in this festival of sacred music at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit, Michigan.
The memorial of Saint Cecilia (The Patron Saint of Music) is celebrated annually on or near her feast day of November 22 and provides an excellent opportunity to gather musicians together. The event is sponsored by the National Association of Pastoral Music (NPM) Committee for Choir Directors and each year, choirs and musicians within parishes, schools, dioceses, NPM chapters, and other worshiping communities come together to raise their voices in song in this national celebration.
This year, the St. Cecilia Sing takes place on Sunday, November 15, 2015 from 3 pm – 5 pm at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament, 9844 Woodward Avenue Detroit, MI 48202-1309.
The 2015-2016 Shrine Knights In Harmony is comprised of 5th and 6th grade students from Shrine Catholic Grade School. Lead by Choir Director Megan Warzecha (Second row, first from right), they are the first children’s choir ever to perform at the St. Cecilia Sing.
