Dear Potential Cathedral Choral Society Singer,

Each season the Cathedral Choral Society performs a series of highly acclaimed concerts at Washington National Cathedral with a commitment to creating “glorious music in a glorious setting” which makes singing with the Cathedral Choral Society so exhilarating and fulfilling. In rehearsal our time is spent interpreting the music – discovering what lies beneath the notes on the page, and polishing the music until it speaks with immediacy to us and ultimately our audience.

You’ll also discover that I am personally committed to the growth of every singer in the Cathedral Choral Society. As a new singer, not only will you experience rehearsals in a fresh, new way, but you’ll also enjoy the benefits of an improved vocal technique as you regularly engage in the extensive vocal warm-ups and mini-vocal workshops that are a regular part of the Cathedral Choral Society’s preparation.

After you look over the audition information, I hope you’ll decide that the Cathedral Choral Society is the right place for you and, if so, I look forward to making your acquaintance.

Wishing you my very best,
