St. Vitus features a flourishing sacred music program, led by Jeff Ostrowski.
We sing Renaissance polyphony, Gregorian Chant, Catholic hymnody, and some modern polyphonic compositions as we accompany the priest - and Our Lord - on the altar for the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Join our 40+ parishioners who sing in our choirs!
Or sing Vespers with us at 5 p.m. on Sundays.
St. Vitus Choir - Christmas Midnight Mass, 2019.
Mr. Ostrowski holds his B.M. in Music Theory from the University of Kansas (2004). He founded and oversees the Sacred Music Symposium, an annual international conference that promotes authentic church music at the grassroots level. His wife and two children are also members of St. Vitus parish and choir.
