Cathedral Schola Cantorum

The Cathedral has recently created a new choir open to all youth in middle and high school from all areas of the local community and beyond. This ensemble shares in the great Cathedral tradition of choral singing that has been a hallmark at Saint John the Divine for nearly 120 years.

Schola members perform with the Cathedral Choirs and Orchestra for our Christmas and Spring concerts, and participate in regularly scheduled services, including Christmas Eve and Easter. St. Francis Day, a landmark New York City event, is a highlight for our Schola singers!

Rehearsals are held on Thursdays from 4:15-5:30 pm at the Cathedral. For more information and to schedule an audition, please contact Samuel Kuffuor-Afriyie, Organ Scholar, at [email protected].
