I need to start a new choit from scratch because the girls singing for this one Mass are leaving for college.
This is a very apathic community. For the whole last year, we tried to recruit because we knew this was going to happen by no one seems to be interested. Other choirs have the same problem.
The congregation of this Mass is composed of mostly young families. Mom, dad, and a couple of kids.
I tried to recruit children since they are there but they say they “don’t speak Spanish” (Mass is in Spanish) They do but that’s an attitude going around here with immigrant families.
I tried to recruit youths, but they are too busy in school. I tried young adults but they are either gratuating from college, starting their professional career or getting married.
We play traditional and comtemporaty church music with piano and guitar. People like it, They just don’t want the commitment.
Has anybody had that problem?
