SMM Orff Ensemble

orffChildren, young people and adults are involved in the SMM Orff Ensemble, which regularly participates in the 9.30 a.m. Sung Mass and other special occasions. Members make music together using easy to learn melodies, simple chords, using xylophones and glockenspiels. Add singing, movement and rhythmic speech and there are ways for all ages to take part. Under the imaginative leadership of Kim Kendrick, the result is a multi-layered soundscape that helps us enter into prayer and engage the Faith. Kim is a trained Orff instructor on Faculty at the Royal Conservatory of Music.
