FIRST SUNDAY OF THE MONTH, OCTOBER–JUNE, 4:30 P.M.
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, a intergenerational choir of children, teenagers, and adults, offers this beautiful service once a month. All are welcome.
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.
