The Cathedral musicians are committed to finding new ways of enriching our worship and reaching the wider community. We use our social media platforms to share choral and organ videos as well as educational content.
Visit our Music at the Cathedral Facebook page regularly for the latest news and offerings. You can also subscribe to our Cathedral's YouTube channel. On this page, you will learn about our most recent outreach projects as well as how to get involved with our programme.
All of this work - in person and digital - is only possible through the continued support of our congregation and friends.
If you feel able to make an offering, you can do so securely by clicking the Donate button. Whether you give towards Easter brass, a choral scholarship, or an organ repair, your contributions make a valuable impact.
We extend a warm welcome to instrumentalists, organists, chamber groups, visiting choirs, and dancers. We are especially supportive of young professionals, and we collaborate extensively with students from the Schulich School of Music. In addition to concerts, guests are invited to offer their musical gifts at the 9 AM French Eucharist, 10:30 AM Choral Eucharist, or 4 PM Evensong. Interested artists should contact the Director of Music.
Christ Church Cathedral is one of few North American churches to offer Choral Evensong every Sunday. Here, you can learn more about this service, its music, as well as our revised Evening Prayer during COVID, Organ Vespers.
Evensong is a distinctly Anglican form of Evening Prayer that unites us with people of all cultures, times, and places. It dates back to 16th century England, although its roots lie in daily offices prayed by the earliest Christians. In this video, our Director of Music introduces the general outline of this service.
