Coro Latinoamericano is recruiting!

Our Coro Latino, at Christ Church Cathedral, is recruiting volunteer singers to sing in the 1 pm Santa Misa en Español. You do not need to be totally fluent in Spanish. However, you must commit to rehearsing every Thursday evening from 6:30-8 pm, and Sundays from 12 to 1 pm (right before mass).

As a member of our Coro Latino you will: receive free vocal and musical instruction from Yuri Rodriguez, enhance your Spanish skills, have access to our nursery during practice hours, acquire cultural competence, make friends from different countries, enjoy free dinner, and have lots of fun. All ages are encouraged to audition. To get an audition, please email Yuri Rodriguez at

Please let me know ( or 317-926-1346 by April 1 how many from your church will be singing, and what voice part they are, so that we might have a count and know how many are in each section.
