Music

The volunteer music program at the Cathedral provides musically minded members of our congregation ways to enhance our worship and proclaim the Good News of Christ through the art of music. The opportunity to serve God through music is both a privilege and a responsibility. Christian stewardship of this privilege requires enthusiasm, discipline and dedication.  Scheduled Anthems can be found here

Adult Choir

The adult volunteer choir sings each Sunday at the 10:30 AM service, from the Sunday after Labor Day through Trinity Sunday. It is open to all congregation members ages 16 and older. The ability to read music is helpful but by no means required.

 

The choir rehearses on Thursday nights from 7:30 to 9:15 PM and again at 9:30 AM on Sunday mornings. In addition to singing on Sunday mornings, the choir also participates in special services and concerts.

 

For more information about joining the adult choir, please contact the Canon for Music and Worship, Ken Brown.

Children’s Choir

The Cathedral’s children’s choir is open to all children in kindergarten through fifth grade. Practice goes from 11:45 to 12:30 AM on Sundays in the Peace Chapel. The children’s choir sings approximately one Sunday a month from September to mid-June. The choir also sings at special services and, with the Choristers, performs an end-of-the-year musical for the congregation. The Children’s Choir uses curriculum from the Royal School of Church Music.

Cathedral Consort

The consort consists of instrumental volunteers from the Cathedral community, supplemented by local professionals as needed.  In 2015, they will be playing selections from Bach’s b minor mass, as well as Cantata 112. Anyone with reasonable proficiency on a musical instrument and the ability to show up on time for rehearsals is encouraged to join up!

Jubilation Ringers

The Jubilation Ringers use a three-octave set of Malmark Handbells and is open to any member of the congregation who has basic music-reading skills. They rehearse after church as needed and ring during the worship service about six times per year.
