MEN ONLY ALOUD is a one day workshop for boys only!


MOA is open to all young men in grades 6-8and 9th grade where appropriate, whose director

We are very excited to have Phil Doucette, director of the Wilmington Children's Chorus,

back as our guest conductor this year! He was a favorite of the boys a few years ago

and we are thrilled he wanted to come back again this year!


The intention for this experience is to not to carry the same pressure for the students that a

traditional All-State or Honor’s Choir event may present. There are no formal auditions.

Students earn a spot in the choir simply on my recommendation.


This year's MOA event will be on Thursday, January 25th, at P.S duPont Middle School.

Sign-in will take place from 8:30-9:00am. A presentation for parents will take place that evening

at 6:30pm (no admission charged).


There is a $40 registration fee for each singer which will cover dinner (usually Olive Garden!),

snacks and drinks for singers, a t-shirt to be worn for the day, and octavos (music). 

Students will need to bring a bag lunch.


Registration deadline is Wednesday, November 1st! See Ms. S for registration form.

Make checks payable to Holy Cross School.


Only a maximum number of 130 young men singers will be accepted (if 130 registrants is reached

prior to the final deadline, your registration check will be returned to you).


Hurry and get those registration form in to Ms. S along with the $40 registration fee!
