The Bishop’s Choir School is a unique program open to children in grades 2-12 regardless of religious affiliation. Choristers will learn about music by singing hymns and anthems in weekly rehearsals and in monthly evening services at Christ Church Cathedral, with occasional events at other parishes in the Diocese of Western Massachusetts.

The Bishop’s Choir School is an outreach ministry of the Diocese of Western Massachusetts, which enables the Cathedral to offer the program tuition-free.

The mission of the Bishop’s Choir School is to:

Provide solid music education in a friendly and fun environment of mutual respect and achievement;
Create an opportunity for children to grow in musical and spiritual strengths that nurture their growth;
Provide children of diverse abilities and backgrounds with a program of music appreciation and choral performance that seeks to fulfill each child’s musical potential.
The program is open to children at every ability level. No previous experience is required or expected, but there are certain attendance and behavior expectations. Students may join at any time, and the program runs every year from September to June.
