The Lux Mundi Schola Cantorum, founded in 2017, is a liturgical choir comprised of City on a Hill members to sing and provide music for City on a Hill liturgies. "Lux Mundi" comes from Matthew 5:14: "You are the light of the world. A city seated on a mountain cannot be hid."  Schola cantorum, translated as "singer's school," refers to the musicians that sing Gregorian chant for the Mass, a term derived from the Middle Ages. It is our mission to sing Gregorian chant as well as sacred polyphony, this sacred treasury of Catholic church music, for City on a Hill! Previous choral experience as well as the ability to read music is preferred, but not required! The skills required for this music will be taught at our rehearsals. Lux Mundi is under the direction of Dr. Katherine Schmitz, the music director at Christ the King Catholic Church in KCMO.
