Holy Cross has been blessed with many talented singers and musicians over its 75 year history.
Rudy Scharlach was the first pianist/organist/choir director and held that position for 40 years. He was a dedicated organist and a true inspiration. When he was not practicing his church music, he used to play the most interesting music that sounded like it should be played at the circus. Jennifer (Kehn) Massicotte once asked him how he kept track of the many verses that he had to play for the hymns. He told her that he moved match sticks one by one to the left. lt was not too clear if he was joking but Jennifer came to realize that he was!
ln the early 80s as Rudy began to slowly reduce his duties, Jennifer Massicotte continued his musical legacy as choir director and recruited her former piano student Heather (Herz) Schein as the church choir accompanist. Now as Musical Director, Jennifer is constantly amazed by the musically talented people with whom the Lord has blessed Holy Cross.
