A Brief History of the Choral Traditions at St. Paul's

A Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys was first established at St. Paul's in 1867. This wonderful tradition served the community for well over 100 years.  Similarly, a recorded history of a Cathedral Girls' Choir dates as far back as the 1920's.


The transforming and expanding church of the 21st Century has brought change in the choir program at St. Paul's. This still dynamic program now features profession adult (male and female) altos, tenors, and basses. The alumni of the choir include distinguished composers, conductors, singers, and instrumentalists.  


The Cathedral Choir is also accustomed to travel, including both domestic and foreign destinations. The choir's most recent foreign tour was to Ireland in July 2019.
