Since 2005, Saint Thomas Choir School has hosted a nine-day choral experience for middle and high school girls, ages 12 – 18, with excellent musical and social skills. Girls prepare two treble Evensongs during the week (sung on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons) and sing Choral Eucharist with the gentlemen of the Saint Thomas Choir on the final Sunday of the Course. Services at Saint Thomas Church are webcast and listened to by thousands of people around the world every week.
Throughout the course, girls and staff live in the Choir School and have an experience similar to what the boys are accustomed to throughout the school year. In addition to rehearsals and services, girls attend music theory and music history classes, work with our Vocal Coach, attend a Broadway Musical, and experience the city as much as possible. Previous outings have included visits to the Natural History Museum and MoMa, strolling the Highline, taking the tram to Roosevelt Island, exploring Central Park and taking a boat ride on the Hudson River.
Tuition for 2021 is $950.* This covers all outings throughout the week including the Broadway Show ticket and room and board. Some spending money is encouraged.
*Please note that music is NOT covered this year and this is reflected in the reduced tuition rate. Girls will need to order music directly through our music distributor in Cleveland, Ohio and can do so upon acceptance to the course.
