Cathedral Youth Schola

fostering faith and the love of sacred music

The Cathedral Youth Schola (CYS) welcomes high school singers into the joy and art of singing sacred choral music and Gregorian chant.  Rehearsals are highly engaging, and in addition to developing their skills at singing in multiple parts, members are provided regular training in basic music theory, vocal techniques, sight-reading, and solfège.

Enrollment for the 2016-2017 choir season is currently underway, and new members are always welcome! Please see the sidebar at the right for CYS information and registration forms. Information and registration forms for the Cathedral Children's Choir (for grade school age children) are available on the CCC page HERE.
