Young Singers of St. Anne’s
This interfaith ensemble consists of treble voices, including boys with unchanged voices ages 8+. Choristers rehearse weekly and sing monthly at our Saturday & Sunday 5:30 PM services. Our diverse choral repertoire consists of music from the Anglican choral tradition as well as other cultural and global musical traditions.
By participating in the choir, choristers gain training in vocal technique, music theory and aural skills that are compatible with studying an instrument, singing in additional choirs or furthering their vocal studies. For more information about our cathedral quality choral training program, contact Elissa Edwards, director, at email@example.com. Download a PDF of our informational brochure & application here.
