Concerts and Choir Tours
The Cathedral choirs perform in a few local concerts each season, both at the Cathedral and other churches or performance venues. Each June, the choirs make a tour, singing concerts and services in churches around the country. Past trips have included performances in Washington, DC, Toronto, and Chicago, and most recently the choir was in residence at Chichester Cathedral and Southwark Cathedral in England, and sang a concert in Canterbury Cathedral.
Each summer, the choristers have a four-day camp in August. New choristers beginning in the fall are highly encouraged to attend. The camp experience enables new choristers to meet the returning singers, and for all to get to know one another.
The choristers begin working on music for the upcoming program year, spend time with the Choir School faculty, and begin setting time with the Choir School faculty, and begin setting the tone for the music education that continues in the fall.
Most of our choristers count Choir Camp as the highlight of their summer!
The Choir School Commitment
The growth and development of each chorister is realized by a commitment to excellence that is shared by Cathedral and the Choir School’s participating families. Success in the Choir School program depends on the commitment of the child and the parents.
