St. Peter’s Choir School is committed to nurturing young choristers and developing a sense of community as we work toward the highest musical standards.
The music education at St. Peter's Choir School is first and foremost unique because boys and girls are trained to sing on a professional level with adults. While intergenerational singing provides our students with a unique and exceptional musical experience in the 21st century, the practice of children singing with adults goes back to 15thcentury England. At that time several intergenerational choirs were established, most notably the Choir of Men and Boys at King's College, Cambridge and the Choir of Men and Boys at Westminster Abbey, London. Today, St. Peter's Choir School provides both boys and girls with an effective model of choral training that has served and continues to serve many English cathedral choirs.
