Trinity Cathedral has variety of choral ensembles that support its weekly liturgies throughout the year. Ensembles vary in size and constituency and are meant to serve the entire Cathedral community.
The Cathedral Choir
The Cathedral Choir is a semi-professional ensemble comprising both professional staff singers and excellent volunteer musicians. The range of literature extends from the Renaissance through Contemporary periods and represents the best of the Anglican choral tradition. The Cathedral Choir is one of the premier ensembles in the greater Phoenix area, serving the weekly 10:00 AM liturgy as well as singing the service of Solemn Choral Evensong on the last Sunday of the month at 4:00 PM from September through May. Additionally, the Cathedral Choir is featured throughout the year on the Music at Trinity series.
The Cathedral Choir is an auditioned ensemble. Requirements include an ability to read music (singing at sight an unfamiliar work), excellent tuning and a voice of clear, straight-tone timbre that blends well with other voices. The Cathedral Choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings.
Please note: Because of the upcoming residency at St. Alban Abbey and Cathedral, no new members will be received into the Cathedral Choir after September 30, 2013.

The St. Nicholas Choir
The St. Nicholas Choir is open to all youth ages 7-18 and draws from all the worship communities in our congregation. In addition to singing for the 10:00 AM and 12:30 PM liturgies, the youth choir learns the fundamentals of music and good vocal production. Extra-curricular activities throughout the year help build strong community among our singing youth. The Youth Choir rehearses Sunday mornings from 11:30 AM to 12:15PM in the Cathedral.
