Notre Dame Folk Choir performs at National Pastoral Musicians Conference

by Paul Murphy

In August 1993, the Folk Choir was one of a handful of American choirs invited to sing for World Youth Day in Denver, Colorado, and for His Holiness John Paul II at the concluding Papal Liturgy.  It is under the direction of Steven Warner along with assistant director Karen Schneider-Kirner.

Current and alumni members of the Notre Dame Folk Choir perform at St. Boniface Church in Louisville, Kentucky as part of the 2011 National Pastoral Musicians’ Conference.

The Folk Choir is just one of Notre Dame’s six choirs and consists mostly of undergraduate students, although it has expanded to the greater academic community. The choir serves the University as one of its principal liturgical choirs. The camaraderie between students and professionals is one of the things that make the Folk Choir unique at Notre Dame.
