"Angela always has a smile on her face and her enthusiasm is infectious! 

Her voice is an incredible instrument from God."

Jeremy Boyer, Saint Louis Blues stadium organist

and Director of Music at Saint Francis of Assisi, Oakville 

Weddings

Catholic weddings are marked by beautiful traditions and rich liturgical nuances. With 20+ years of experience making music in the Catholic liturgy, you may choose me as your “one stop shop” for all things wedding music, or simply as your wedding cantor. Choose your favorite from many settings of the Ave Maria, and know I’ve got you covered down to the very last detail.

Funerals

It often isn’t til the singing starts that loved ones can truly grieve. Hire someone with experience and sensitivity. Having sung in 40+ STL area churches, I arrive knowing all my music and ready to sing, am comfortable with contemporary and traditional funeral selections, and several moving solos fitting for the occasion. On short notice, text is best: (734) 645-3273.

Multicultural

“Catholic” literally means “universal”, and the Catholic Faith finds expression across the globe in every culture and every language.  I have planned and coordinated music for Maronite, bilingual English/Spanish, and Latin Masses, even learned a hymn in Gaelic upon request. I love learning, and look forward to discovering the traditions that matter most to you.

Solemn Liturgies

Beautifully rendered music lends profound dignity to your 

celebration. Need a single soloist, pickup singer to strengthen your existing choir, or a vocal quartet? My experience and connections as a Cathedral cantor and choir section leader will help you to elevate your liturgy.

Concerts

I also work as a concert soloist and professional choir section leader. I was a long-time member of the professional Early Music vocal ensemble Pro-Arte Saint Louis, and have been the soprano soloist in Christmas at the Cathedral concerts (pictured). I read music well, enjoy learning new repertoire, and come fully prepared and ready to sing.

Gregorian Chant

I studied chant under Dom Saulnier at the Abbaye Saint-Pierre de Solesmes in France. I founded the Cathedral Chant School in Peoria, IL, and have presented chant workshops to amateur and professional musicians, at Bradley University, Peoria, for the AGO Saint Louis Chapter, Musica Sacra Saint Louis, and various cathedrals and parishes.
