Cathedral Children's Choir

fostering faith and the love of sacred music

The Cathedral Children’s Choir (CCC) was established in 2012 to offer grade-school-age students from around the Diocese of Joliet a joyful and comprehensive liturgical choral experience. By Fall 2013, the choir expanded to include choristers in grades K through 3 with Junior and Intermediate Levels. Together with the original CCC Senior Level for grades 4-8 and the Cathedral Youth Schola for high school voices now in its third year.

Enrollment for the 2016-2017 choir season — new members are always welcome! Please see the sidebar at the right for information and registration forms for all three levels of the Cathedral Children's Choir. Information and registration forms for the Cathedral Youth Schola (high school voices) are available on the CYS page HERE.

Our children’s choirs and youth schola focus on the preparation of sacred music from the parish’s repertoire, including traditional hymnody, lighter styles of song, and service music, as well as selections from the Roman Catholic Church’s rich treasury of choral music.  Our rehearsals will focus on fostering superior musicianship, healthy vocal technique, and strong Catholic spirituality, while preparing to sing at liturgies and concerts scheduled throughout the year.
