Cathedral Choir & Schola


The Cathedral Choir provides musical leadership primarily for the 10:00 a.m. Sunday Mass as well as various parish and Archdiocesan celebrations. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. in the St. Cecilia Chapel. Membership is open to all by audition.

Each December, the Choir combines with the Archdiocesan Choir and performs in “Christmas at the Cathedral” as part of St. Louis Cathedral Concerts.

The choirs performed the Haydn “Mass in Time of War” in June, 2007 at the Cathedral and as part of the National NPM Convention in Indianapolis.

In 2009 they participated in the installation of our new Archbishop, The Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson and a trip to Rome and Assisi for the special liturgies for Archbishop Carlson as he received his Pallium.

In 2012 the Cathedral Choir was joined by members of the Archdiocesan Choir on a tour to Germany in the footsteps of Pope Benedict XVI. The choir was invited to sing in the cathedrals of Regensburg, Munich, and the Basilica of Vierzehnheiligen.

General auditions are always held at the end of August and special auditions are available throughout the year. For more information, please email or call the Cathedral music office at or 314-373-8227.



The Cathedral Schola is made up of select musicians and membership is by audition only. The schola performs special music for various occasions. The choir is especially dedicated to the rich musical heritage of the Roman Catholic Church, from Gregorian Chant to vocal polyphony and beyond.
