All Saints Choir

July 1st, 10:30am

The All Saints Choir is one of the oldest of its kind in the United States, having been founded in 1868.  Its main duty is to provide music for Mass every Sunday as well as other choral liturgies, including Choral Evensong, weddings, funerals, and concerts.  In addition to its weekly liturgical duties at All Saints, the choir performs regularly in Worcester and in Boston.  It has also performed further afield at Washington National Cathedral, New York City’s Carnegie Hall, and St. Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue, as well as venues elsewhere in the United States and Canada.  In recent years the choir has toured internationally in the UK and in Ireland. 

The All Saints Choir is relatively unusual in that it maintains a choir of boy and girl choristers to sing the treble part, with adult volunteers singing the lower three parts.  Entry to the choir is by audition, and the choristers start their training with a probationary year, when they learn about the routines and repertoire of the choir, and are given a firm grounding in vocal technique and sight-reading.  This training has led several generations of graduates to notable careers in music, both within the Worcester community and beyond.
