Pretty sure I’ve posted on this question before, but what are people doing if you give your choir time off in the summer? With Easter quite late this year, Pentecost moves to the Sunday before Father’s Day.
The cultural summer in the US begins with Memorial Day, and a lot of places cut out choir practice by then. How do Catholic parishes maintain an all-out Easter celebration? Would you insist your choir keep hard at it through June 11th?
In my parish, with the students gone, our music ministries are operating at about 40-50% of what they have during the main academic year. Anybody else finding choristers slipping away? How would you handle it as the armchair liturgist?
