Founded in 2001, the Girls Choir is the only all-girl cathedral choir in Canada. We are a welcoming community where friendships and camaraderie flourish alongside a commitment to excellence in sacred music. We train complete musicians and develop confident leaders. While our home base is the beautiful, inspiring and historic Christ Church Cathedral campus we have a rich history of outreach and concert work alongside participation in high-profile civic and state events. We have toured extensively including to the UK, Germany, France, Hong Kong and Japan and are currently planning a performance tour of Ireland for summer 2025.

Who can join?
We are looking for girls aged 8-17 who love to sing and who want to be part of a dynamic, friendly and welcoming community.

When do you meet?
Our season runs from September-June with weekly rehearsals on Thursday evenings. Our schedule of performances and other events is published twice a year (at the end of August and in late December).

Do I have to be Anglican to join?
No. We accept choristers from any and no religious background.

Do I have to read music or have sung in a choir before?
No. We provide professional-level training alongside mentorships with some of the city’s best professional musicians.

What type of music do you sing?
We sing music of all kinds (not just church music). Together with loads of beautiful classical repertoire you can expect to encounter jazz, Broadway showtunes and Disney songs along the way. We sing on our own as well as alongside members of the other Cathedral Choirs.

How much does it cost?
Nothing! In fact, choristers receive a small stipend from us to recognize their service and commitment.

An informal conversation with James Calkin, Director of Music, is the ideal first step! He can be reached anytime at
