Choral Evensong

FIRST SUNDAY OF THE MONTH, OCTOBER–JUNE, 4:30 P.M., LIVE ON THE CATHEDRAL'S LIVESTREAM PAGE

The ancient practice of singing evening prayers is a longstanding tradition in cathedrals throughout the world, particularly those of the Anglican tradition. The Saint Mark’s Evensong Choir, an intergenerational choir of children, teenagers, and adults, offers this beautiful service once a month. All are welcome.

Choral Evensong will resume as an in-person service on October 3, 2021.


About the Evensong Choir

This ensemble consists of advanced Choristers and members of the Schola of the Choir School, plus twelve to twenty auditioned adult singers. They offer Choral Evensong in the English Cathedral tradition on the first Sunday of the month at 4:30 p.m., October through May or June, and sing occasional special liturgies at Christmas and in Holy Week. This choir served as Choir in Residence for a week at Saint Paul’s Cathedral, London, and a week at Ely Cathedral, in July, 2018. They anticipate additional residencies in English cathedrals approximately every three years.
