The Chorister Program at SPC


Unparalleled Music Education!


St. Paul’s Cathedral has provided children with first-rate music education for over 150 years.  Our professional music staff will take the time to help your chorister grow into a singer, musician, and leader.


Each child enrolled in our choir program receives FREE vocal training, music education, time, and resources from our professional music staff valued at over $5,000 a year. In addition, they are paid a monthly stipend for their hard work.  As choristers progress from our Training Choir to the Treble Choir, they develop healthy voices and professional music reading skills. 


Singing in the choir at St. Paul’s is a life-changing experience.  Choristers learn to value teamwork and community – the friendships, leadership skills, and strong musicianship learned at St. Paul’s will last a lifetime.
