Our Choirs

We have a vibrant music program at St. Veronica. If you like to sing or play an instrument and feel called to share your gift, please contact Emily at No experience playing/singing with a group is necessary, only the ability to match pitch. ​Potential cantors, choir members, and instrumentalists are selected by audition with the Director of Music. Cantors and Adult Instrumentalists are the only ones not required to come to weekly practices, but schedule practice as needed with the Director of Music, practice music at home, and arrive thirty minutes prior to their scheduled Mass time to review music.​ If you have any questions, please contact, or 703-773-2009.
