Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle (R.C.) 1725 Rhode Island Avenue NW Washington, DC 20036

There is currently an opening for a Soprano in the Schola Cantorum of the cathedral. Schola members sing for both the 10:00 am (Latin) and 11:30 am (English) Sunday Eucharists in one of the most rewarding acoustic settings in the area.

Because of the nature of the music (Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony, and later anthems), and the amount of repertoire each week, prospective singers must have significant adult choral experience, excellent sight-reading skills, and a pleasant, agile voice. The commitment of time and focused energy is considerable, particularly at Christmas and Holy Week. Extra singing opportunities include Archdiocesan liturgies and civic and community functions (annual Red Mass, state funerals) and concerts. Professionals sing with 11 other professionals and up to 14 auditioned, experienced volunteers.

 Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm.
