st. thomas choir school


St. Thomas Choir School is a tuition-free extra-curricular opportunity for youth that is committed to providing the finest musical education, nurturing the best examples of citizenship while carrying forth the centuries-old tradition of choral singing.

Affiliated with the Royal School of Church Music in America, we adhere to the principle that children are capable of learning to sing the finest in choral music from all composers of all periods and in a variety of languages.  Our choristers are not merely taught how to sing.  Their time is divided between rehearsing the music to be sung in services and in concert, and learning music theory skills, vocal technique, and music reading.  Children need not have had any previous musical experience in order to begin participation in the choir.
