The Cathedral Choir School at St. James Cathedral, 65 E. Huron St., Chicago, IL                  The after-school program offers children world-class musical training at no cost financially. Choristers will have the opportunity to go on tours, attend summer choir camp, make recordings, and— of course—sing excellent music to a professional standard. Any child entering grades 3 through 8 may join, regardless of religious affiliation. No prior experience is necessary, and there is no tuition. The only requirement is commitment to the choir’s rehearsal and service schedule. We invite all prospective choristers to come visit St. James and arrange an informal interview with Stephen Buzard, Director of Music. Mr. Buzard can be reached by email at or at (312) 751-3579The choristers will rehearse every Wednesday afternoon and sing for one of the Sunday services at St. James, starting after Labor Day. On Wednesdays, choristers can arrive straight after school for homework time, music lessons, and other activities. Rehearsal will begin at 4:30 p.m. and conclude with a brief Evensong in the Cathedral at 5:45 p.m., which parents are invited to attend. Choir supper follows, finishing around 6:30 p.m. Choristers are eligible to receive scholarships for music lessons at St. James through the Music Institute of Chicago, one of the most respected community music schools in the country.
