The Schola Cantorum (grades 4–8) was founded early in the 20th century by the Cathedral's first music director, Dr.
Franklin S. Palmer. Originally a boys’ choir, the ensemble in its present format includes both girls and boys. The choir,
which provides musical and liturgical training for young people from St. James parish and from neighboring parishes, supports
the music at the 12:00 “First Sunday Youth Celebrations,” the 5:30 Christmas Eve Vigil, and various archepiscopal liturgies. Ms. Stacey Sunde, conductor.
