YOU’RE INVITED – to sing with the Cathedral Choral Society 

We create transcendent musical experiences for all people in a space of beauty and community, and we need your voice to do it. We believe that, through music, we can build a more equitable and connected worldwide community. 

The Cathedral Choral Society, one of DC’s most prominent symphonic choruses, is welcoming new members for both digital and live singing opportunities. For more than a year, the Covid-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of in-person rehearsals and performances. Now, CCS is carefully planning for a time when we might once again come together to sing with each other – and for one another – in person.

We welcome singers of all voice types and with all levels of experience. Currently, auditions are being held virtually with the Music Director.

The upcoming season – and the protocols that will ensure everyone’s safety – are still being developed. However, it is the Cathedral Choral Society’s 80th anniversary and it’s going to be an exciting one! At no time will you be asked to participate in an event that makes you feel unsafe.

The Audition

Auditions are approximately 10 minutes long and include: 

  • A solo piece of your choosing (at least 4 minutes in length), or two shorter, contrasting solo pieces
  • Ear-training and pitch-matching exercises
  • Sight-reading

Sign Up

Regular rehearsals are held seasonally on Monday nights from 7:30 – 10:00 p.m. at Washington National Cathedral. Typically the season starts the Monday after Labor Day and concludes after the final concert in May, though community sings and recording projects may occur outside of those times.
