Choir Trip to London 2017
Saint Paul’s, Chestnut Hill goes to Saint Paul’s Cathedral, London
Saint Paul’s Adult Choir and Choral Scholars will spend a week serving a Choral Residency at Saint Paul’s Cathedral in London in July 2017. While we provide choral music for Eucharist and Evensong services on a regular basis at Saint Paul’s, as the resident choir in one of England’s great cathedrals we can experience the beauty and meaning of Anglican music in its traditional and historic context. The Choir Residency will be a strong sign of sharing our gifts on a global level, and is an amazing opportunity for our growth as a choir. English Cathedrals have high expectations for singing of high quality, broad repertoire, and the ability to lead worship in the liturgy. To be invited to lead choral worship services at Saint Paul’s Cathedral is a great honor, for which we give thanks.
We hope that many friends will be able to join us for services while we are in London.
Schedule of Services, July 23rd-30th, 2017
Choral Evensong at Saint Martin-in-the-Fields, 5:00pm on Sunday July 23rd
Choral Evensong at Saint Paul’s Cathedral, 5:00pm on July 24th, 27th, 28th, 29th

The preparation for this residency will propel both spiritual and musical growth in our understanding of liturgy, music, vocal technique, overall musicianship, and “hands-on” leadership experience. During this program year the choir will add extra rehearsal time and offer additional services of Choral Evensong (2016-17 schedule here).
