The Choir

The Choir of the Church of Saint Louis, King of France, is a semi-professional ensemble. They sing at the 11:00 am Sunday Mass from the Sunday after Labor Day through Corpus Christi. In addition, the choir sings at the major liturgies at Christmas and during Holy Week. The choir’s repertoire is drawn from the great treasure of western liturgical music, from Gregorian chant to works commissioned by the parish.

The Schola Saint-Louis also sings at other liturgies throughout the year. This group consists of the eight section leaders, many of whom are members of notable performing groups in the Twin Cities such as VocalEssence, the Minnesota Chorale, the Rose Ensemble, and the Singers.

In the summer, quartets drawn from the Schola sing at the 11:00 am Sunday Mass.

Volunteers form an important part of the choir and are always welcome to audition. Good singing ability is necessary, as well as some proficiency in sight singing. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings at 7:15. To arrange an audition, please call Brian Carson at 651-224-8847 or email him at
