The Youth Choristers join the Adult Choir in providing musical leadership for the 10:30 Choral Eucharist each Sunday (Homecoming Sunday through Trinity Sunday) and for special liturgies throughout the year. Although there is no minimum age requirement for membership in the Youth Choir, all choristers must be able to read. At present, choristers range from six to sixteen years of age.
During rehearsal, choristers do more than just sing. Instead, using the Royal School of Church Music Voice for Life program, they enjoy a well-rounded musical education (vocal production, music theory, and sight reading) as they become acquainted with the rich choral heritage of the Anglican tradition. For special services, members of the Youth Choir are also often chosen to serve in other ways, such as crucifers and torchbearers.
Rehearsal takes place on Wednesday afternoon, 4:30 – 5:45 p.m. Sunday morning warm-up begins at 9:45 a.m. Children and youth whose families do not belong to the parish are most welcome in the Youth Choir!
