Admission to the ATB Choir is by competitive audition. Auditions are normally held each fall. Audition requirements emphasize vocal ability and sight-singing.

The Cathedral Singers provides an opportunity for parishioners -- men, women and teens -- to be a part of a choral ensemble. The Cathedral Singers is the primary choir during the months of June, July and August.
Children and youth deepen their sense of history, liturgy, language and art as well as their ability to interpret sacred texts and music. Through the ongoing effort of learning and working together, they also develop friendships and become part of a community that uplifts collective and individual efforts. The Cathedral choirs learn what it is to be at the heart of vibrant worship.
