Do you have a child who loves to sing or wants to learn? Choral singing is not just about music – it builds social skills, community, and cooperation in addition to making music to the glory of God. Saint James is proud to be home to a renowned youth music program.

Jubilate!, the Cathedral's ensemble for young women of high school age, sings regularly at the noon Mass on the third Sunday of the month as well as various special liturgies and occasional Vespers. Jubilate! rehearses on Thursdays from 5:00-7:00pm.

The Schola Cantorum choir, for girls and boys grades 4–8, provides the music at the noon "First Sunday Youth Celebrations," the 5:30 Christmas Eve Vigil, and various archepiscopal liturgies. Schola Cantorum rehearses on Thursdays from 4:30-6:00pm.

New choristers are requested to complete a short interview to assess musical aptitude – to schedule an interview, please call the Youth Music Office at 206-382-4876 or send an email to youthmusic@stjames-cathedral.org, and we will give you contact information to reach Ms. Stacey Sunde, Director of the Youth Music Program. There is a $100 tuition fee assessed for each child per semester, and financial aid scholarships are available for all families with need. Singers are not required to be Catholic or members of the parish, but they should be prepared to sing at all scheduled liturgies. Registration is ongoing throughout the semester. Fall semester runs from September through December, and Spring semester from January through June.
