Maryellen Damiano
Weddings I am available to sing throughout your wedding ceremony whether in a church, hotel or private home venue. This includes singing as guests arrive and are seated, mother’s song when they are seated, preludes, postludes and special song(s) before and after vows and or readings.
If a Mass service is your choice, I am able to sing the Mass components including appropriate solo/hymns at offertory communion and communion meditation. I can assist you in choosing your music and am available to rehearse with the accompanist of your choosing. I can provide one if needed. Besides my repertoire I can sing any song you desire.
Funerals Funerals are such a difficult time. It is most important for me to be available and assist the music director and family at the respective church with music choices. Special music should be in mind to honor the deceased. This would include a solo after biblical readings or eulogy. If a Roman Catholic Mass is chosen I am able to lead the music at the start of the mass, sing the psalm, gospel acclamation and mass settings. I also include special meditation music at offertory, communion, and Song of Farewell. I would meet with the music director for rehearsal and learn any music chosen.
Other Special events such as memorials, birthday and Christmas parties are a forte of mine. I would be available to help organize and be part of the musical component for these events.

“Maryellen is a great cantor and wonderful person. She brings a dedication and passion that I think I’ve never seen outdone.”
