The Cathedral Choir is recognized as one of the finest choral ensembles in the region. In addition to Sunday morning responsibilities, the Cathedral Choir sings for monthly services of Choral Evensong, on major feasts, participates in the Cathedral Commissions program and is well known for their internationally released recordings with Raven CD.

Tours form an important part of the Cathedral Choir’s evangelism and outreach to the greater musical and liturgical community. The Cathedral Choir has sung by invitation in such prestigious venues as Saint Thomas’s Church, Fifth Avenue, New York City; Washington National Cathedral; St. George’s Chapel, Windsor; Canterbury Cathedral; St. Paul’s Cathedral, London; Southwark Cathedral, London and York Minster. Their next international tour is scheduled for the summer of 2014 and will include week-long residencies at Winchester Cathedral and Westminster Abbey.
