Cathedral Girls' Choir

Cathedral Girls' Choir

Founded in 2001, the Christ Church Cathedral Girls' Choir is the only all-girl cathedral choir in Canada and maintains a busy schedule of liturgical and concert work including important civic and national events as well as travel both in Canada and abroad. Our 25 choristers come from across the National Capital Region and experience a rich tradition where friendships and camaraderie flourish in our common commitment to excellence in sacred music. 

In recent years the choir has toured Montreal (October 2013 & May 2017) and New York City (September 2014) singing at St-Joseph's Oratory, Notre Dame Basilica, Cathedrale Marie-Reine-du-Monde, Grace and St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Churches. In the summer of 2016, the Choir embarked on its second major European tour which included a choral residency at St. Alban's Cathedral in the UK and multiple concert and liturgical appearances in Germany in collaboration with the cathedral girls' choirs of Wurzburg and Bamberg as well as the youth choirs of St. Magdalena Church in Herzogenaurach.

Last December (2017) they were featured performers (alongside the Choir of Men and Boys) in the National Arts Centre Orchestra's gala Christmas concert. Members of the Choir return to the NAC this November in a performance of Britten's War Requiem to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

The Choir's third international tour is currently planned for the summer of 2019 and will encompass concerts, collaborations, and liturgies in Japan and Hong Kong.

Inquiries from prospective choristers and their families are always warmly received.
