Welcome to the Choirs of Christ Church Cathedral!
Our Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys (founded in 1883) and our Cathedral Girls’ Choir (founded in 1945) are among a very few of their kind in North America, and are patterned in the centuries-old English Cathedral choir tradition. Our Girl and Boy choristers come from throughout the Indianapolis area and from a variety of schools and religious backgrounds. We offer our choristers weekly vocal and music theory instruction, training in sight singing and musicianship, and regular formation as the people of God.
Our Girls’ Choir and our Choir of Men and Boys have sung by invitation at some of the great Cathedrals of the United Kingdom and in Europe, including Westminster Abbey, Our Lady of Notre Dame, and Ely Cathedral. As well, we regularly offer concerts, broadcasts and recordings.
We welcome your interest in our Choir ministry, and we hold regular auditions for Boy and Girl Choristers. Our Boys’ Choir is open to boys beginning at age 7. The boys rehearse on Tuesdays from 4:30-6 p.m. and on Thursdays from 4:30-8 p.m. (singing Choral Evensong at 5:15 p.m. and sharing dinner together from 6-6:30 p.m. with the Men of the choir). Our Girls’ Choir is open to girls beginning at age 7. The girls rehearse on Tuesday’s from 6:30-7:45 p.m. and Wednesdays from 4:30-5:45 p.m. (singing Choral Evensong at 5:15 p.m. on the first and third Wednesday of each month and then sharing dinner together). For more information, please contact Matthew Middleton, our Interim Organist and Choirmaster, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Coro Hispano (founded in 2000) leads the people of our 1 p.m. Santa Eucharistia each Sunday in the glory and praise of God. Our choir intersects the best of the Anglican tradition with the best of Latino music and culture (for example, think of a Psalm in Spanish sung to Anglican chant, or a traditional anthem in Quechua, the language of the South American Incas). This choir rehearses each Saturday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., and is led by Dr. Yuri Rodiriguez. For more information, please contact her email@example.com.
