Music Based Evangelization Opportunities with "The Ladies of Cecilia"
Proclaiming the faith through beautiful music.
We are "The Ladies of Cecilia", a vocal ensemble of orthodox, Catholic young women who wish to use our musical talents and knowledge of the faith to make a difference in peoples lives. The principle focus of our ministry is the advancement of the Culture of Life by the promotion of authentic Catholic family values to today's young people. It is our hope that, through the music we perform and the witness we give, we may lead others to a knowledge of Christ and His Church.
Do you like to sing or can you play an instrument well? Do you enjoy sharing your Catholic faith with others? Can you be a good role model and make a difference in a young person's life?
We are conducting a nationwide talent search for Catholic young ladies of above average music ability in the areas of classical or contemporary voice (alto or soprano), string or wind instruments. While not a requirement, acting, dance, music theater or public speaking experience would be an additional plus. Some knowledge of Latin would also be helpful.
Performing in small vocal ensembles, these young ladies will take the principles of our Catholic faith and "multiply", so to speak, their effect through the medium of music: quality music performed by women of character, modesty, and grace. Through their own good example, and the witness they give, they will promote the virtues of true womanhood and authentic Catholic family life to today’s young people.
High school seniors, college age women or recent graduates, especially those with degrees in music, are encouraged to apply. We are especially interested in individuals who were either home-schooled or were raised in the Tridentine Mass tradition. This is a great opportunity for young women to learn more about their own faith, while meeting other young Catholic musicians who share the same traditional values. Parents of younger girls, ages 12-16, who may be interested in our junior program, are also encouraged to apply.
Our basic requirements are: a strong music background in one’s chosen field; a sound knowledge of basic Catholic teachings; faithfulness to the Holy Father and the Magisterium of the Church; a strong devotion to Our Lady and the Rosary; and a good understanding and appreciation of the Church’s teaching on modesty.
Interested young ladies may mail or e-mail (preferred) their résumé with repertoire to:
