CATHEDRAL BASILICA CHILDREN’S CHOIR
We are incredibly excited to announce that our Children’s Choir will once again meet in Fall 2020! Keeping in mind the health and safety of our children, we have crafted a hybrid program that includes virtual choir and in-person handbells. For the in-person portion of the choir, all children and instructors will be masked, with appropriate social distancing and gloves while handling the bells. This opportunity is not to be missed as these children will continue to grow in their musicianship, while having a sense of fellowship with peers all while enjoying the process of music-making. For more information email Charlene Angelini at firstname.lastname@example.org

The Cathedral Basilica 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.
Rehearsals are held two to three Saturdays per month, 10 AM – noon. There are currently two divisions of the 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.
