THE CATHEDRAL CHOIR
This ministry enriches, embellishes, and supports the celebration of the Liturgy through God's gift of music. Discernment of this gift through an informal audition, the ability to read music, and experience as a choral singer are required. Rehearsals are each Thursday from 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm and 45 minutes prior to each Liturgy at which this choir is scheduled to sing. The “requirements” for the Cathedral Choir include the ability to read music, prior choral experience, and a brief audition/interview. At the brief audition/interview, you will sing a song (or part of a song) of your choice; you will sing a series of vocal exercises; and you will sight sing a part of a choral piece.
Cathedral Concert Series
In keeping with the tradition of cathedrals throughout the ages, the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart actively promotes and engages in the arts and social outreach for the Catholic Diocese of Richmond and the Greater Richmond Area.
“The Cathedral Concert Series” and “The Guest Artists & Guest Choirs At Cathedral Liturgies Series” are made possible through a generous grant from the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation; a generous music ministry endowment created by + Frank T. Eck; a generous music ministry endowment created by J. Alfred & Margaret Broaddus, Jr.; and the generosity of the community of the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart.
