The Abbey Singers of St. Norbert College
Established in 2010, the Abbey Singers of St. Norbert College is an audition-only paid choir comprised of vocal majors from the St. Norbert College Chamber Singers.
In partnership with Dr. Sarah Parks, director of choral education at the college, this vocal ensemble was conceived as a means to bring a high quality of choral liturgical music to the celebration of the Sunday Eucharist at St. Norbert Abbey, as well as to provide another choral opportunity to students that focuses specifically on liturgical music.
The Abbey Singers rehearse once a week in the reverberant acoustics of the abbey church preparing musical genres that range from Gregorian chant and polyphony to contemporary music styles. Directed by Dr. Michael Frisch, O. Praem., the Abbey Singers enrich the worship at Mass with their choral music during the college’s academic year.
