Known for their longstanding dedication to excellence, the Holy Family Parish Choir has been in existence for over fifty years. Though Holy Family Parish just celebrated 144 years as a parish, the current Parish Choir was formed in the early 60’s by John Petrick. Prior to the direction under John Petrick the choir was actually split into a men’s choir and a women’s choir. Following Mr. Petrick, direction of the choir was taken over by Walter Lindert, a man of great talent and standards who fled from Poland during the Second World War to avoid religious persecution. At the conclusion of Mr. Lindert’s leadership, Michael Seredick was appointed director of the group. It was under Mr. Seredick’s direction that the choir obtained its’ reputation of excellence. During his twenty-six years as director, Mr. Seredick produced many recordings. Following Mr. Seredick’s tenure as director, the choir was lead under the direction of Mr. Robert McMurray until the fall of 2006 when Mr. David Uschold was appointed choirmaster.
The Holy Family Parish Choir is always welcoming new members. The group rehearses on Wednesday evening at 7:00 p.m. and provides music primarily for the 9:30 a.m. liturgy on Sunday and all solemnities. In addition, the Parish Choir produces special programs at Holy Family as well as other churches and venues throughout the year.
