The Cathedral Chorister program provides youth with a foremost musical education that embraces the tradition of children's voices. For nearly one thousand years, children (primarily boys until the last sixty years) have sung daily services in the great cathedrals and collegiate chapels of England. Our holistic approach to training these choristers places equal emphasis on musical development, religious education, leadership training and social activities. Cathedral Choristers receive professional training in the fundamentals of music including sight-reading, ear-training, and music theory. The program is open to boys and girls in grades K through 12. Teen boys with changed voices are also welcome. Rehearsal times offer flexibility and choristers are required to attend twice per week. Currently, choristers sing on occasion at the 9:00 a.m. service and lead Choral Evensong once a month.
This is a Oklahoma community program, and open and available to anyone who would like to join. Membership at St. Paul's or a particular religious or faith affiliation is not required.
