Placeholder Image
The Madison Diocesan Choir is a choral group of over 70 members, under the direction of Dr. Patrick Gorman, and with accompanist, Glenn Schuster, on organ and piano. Local singers with the Madison Diocesan Choir include tenors Tim Jones, Brodhead, and George Breadon, Monroe.

The choir will perform at Mass at 5:15 p.m. Saturday, March 14, at St. Victor Catholic Church in Monroe. They will present a short program prior to Mass. The present pastor of the church, Fr. Michael Klarer, sang with the choir in the 1980s, for a period of time.

The choir was formed over 30 years ago, and Dr. Gorman has been its director for the past 15 years. The choir rehearses weekly at the Bishop O'Connor Catholic Center (BOCC), High Point Road, Madison. The majority of its members are members of various catholic parishes in the Madison Dioceses, from areas as diverse as Monroe and Waterloo, to Sun and Sauk Prairies.

The choir annually presents a Spring concert, a Christmastime "Lessons and Carols," at the BOCC, as well as singing for Mass in various parishes in the Madison Dioceses throughout the year. They also sing for various church events, such as ordinations to the Diaconate and Priesthood; and Chrism Mass. They also annually sing for a Christmas Mass for television for the handicapped as well as for the annual Christmas Party (and Mass) for the Apostolate to the Handicapped in Monroe.

Members of other faith communities are welcome to hear the choir and attend mass at St. Victor Church on March 14.
