St. Paul's Chorister Program

The St. Paul’s Chorister program offers a sound musical education to children from the greater Norwalk community from grades 2 through 12. The choir is committed to musical excellence, self discipline, and social development. The choir rehearses at least twice weekly, and sings most frequently on Sundays for services at St. Paul’s.  Each year, the choir embarks on singing tours across Connecticut, New England, and the United States, including trips to Boston and Worcester, Massachusetts; New York City; Washington, D.C.; and more.

The choristers sing music of the greatest composers of sacred music, and receive a musical education which includes music theory, music history, and vocal training. In addition, the choristers learn about the liturgy and history of the church. While all choristers and their families are welcome to participate fully in the life of St. Paul’s Church, membership is not required, nor do you have to be Episcopalian.

Children of all eligible ages and any musical ability are welcome to join at any time, so long as the chorister (along with their family!) brings a love of music and a strong sense of commitment: to the program, to the choir community, and to their own development in the choir.

There is no regular tuition cost for being a member of the St. Paul’s Choristers.  Activity fees are collected for all special trips.  Scholarship is available to all families based on need, and contingent on good-faith participation by the chorister in the choir, and by the chorister and their family in the choir’s fundraising efforts.
