The Archdiocesan Children’s Choir sings for major liturgies of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia as well as one liturgy per month at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul. The choir also accepts invitations from parishes across the Archdiocese to sing for liturgies of particular significance to the parish community and they perform in concerts both in the greater Philadelphia area and beyond. They were an important part of the World Meeting of Families and Papal Masses in September 2015, and traveled to Rome to sing for the Pope as part of the International Children’s Festival for Epiphany 2016.

The Archdiocesan Boy Choir was founded in 1969 by Dr. Peter LaManna at the request of John Cardinal Krol. The Archdiocesan Girls Choir was founded in 2012 by Dr. John A Romeri. The two choirs were combined into one choir in 2014.  Rehearsals are held two to three Saturdays per month, 10 AM – noon.  As of Fall 2018, there are two divisions of the Archdiocesan Children’s Choir — the Junior and Senior Choirs.  The distinction for each group is based upon age, musical experience and note-reading.  Children may audition beginning in Grade 3. For an audition, call 215-587-3537.
