Come make a joyful noise unto the Lord! Sacred music has a profound impact on the celebration of our liturgies at Holy Family. To sing is to pray twice. Our talented and dedicated ministers of music offer their talents in joyous prayer and worship. These include, but are not limited to (in alpha order): Adult Choir, Cantor Program, Contemporary Ensemble, Family Choir, Filipino Choir, Instrumentalists, Resurrection Choir, and Schola Cantorum.
To request music ministry information, join a choir, or request an audition for 8:45 Schola Cantorum or the Cantor Program, contact Director of Music/Organist Matthew C. Cremisio at (407) 876-2211 x239 or email Matt or fill out this Music Ministry Application.

Adult Choir is comprised of volunteer members who give of their time and talents to glorify God through the ministry of music. This choir traditionally sings at the 10:30 a.m. Mass on Sundays and at other Holy Days and special events throughout the liturgical year. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings from 8:00p.m.-9:15 p.m. Membership in the ensemble is open to all interested vocalists beyond High School, and by audition for section/part placement at the discretion of the ensemble director.
The Cantor Program is designed to help lead our congregation in prayer through song. This group meets at various times throughout the year to rehearse music for the upcoming liturgical season, and follows a rotating schedule, which is carefully balanced to meet the needs for weekend Masses and special liturgical celebrations.
Most Filipinos have a strong devotion to the Sacred Heart. They show their love and devotion through the Celebration of the Eucharist on the First Friday of each month at 7:00 p.m., where they provide music in Tagalog, the national language of the Philippines. Anyone interested in joining, please contact Matt Cremisio or see Fr. Raul for more information.
Instrumentalists add beauty and color to our music ministry. If you play an instrument, and are interested in joining liturgical celebrations, please contact the Music Office for an audition. Aside from special liturgy celebrations, instrumentalists traditionally participate in the Contemporary Ensemble.
Resurrection Choir is comprised of volunteer men and women who want to share their musical talents by providing beautiful music for families who are grieving the loss of a loved one. This ensemble sings at funerals and rehearses as needed. Most Funeral Masses are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the 8:30am daily Mass. Membership in the ensemble is open to all interested vocalists beyond High School, and by audition for section/part placement at the discretion of the ensemble director.
