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

There is currently an opening for an Alto in the Schola Cantorum of the cathedral. Schola members sing for the 11:00 am  Sunday Eucharist 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 7 other professionals and up to 16 auditioned, experienced volunteers. Professionals are also frequently invited to sing for weddings and funerals.

The Schola Cantorum is on a Winter Break but will resume with rehearsals on Feb 15.

 Rehearsals are typically Wednesday evenings, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm.

 $190 typical week (1 rehearsal, 1 service) $75.00/ Wednesday rehearsal $115 Sunday service plus additional calls for investitures, state funerals, Lessons and Carols, Holy Week,  Archdiocesan liturgies (Approx. 28 additional calls)
