Join the Choir of All Saints


  • Membership in the Choir is free of charge and open to any boy who enjoys singing. No prior musical experience or religious affiliation is required: basic receptivity to musical training, and a firm commitment of time for rehearsals and services are the only requirements. The best time for a boy to join the Choir is between 3rd and 5th grade, although older boys (through 7th grade) are also considered for admission. We begin with an interview – a simple, stress-free process requiring no preparation, although a parent is required to attend. Most boys come to the Choir with no prior singing experience. Please contact Andrew Sheranian, the Organist and Master of Choristers at , 617-436-3520, ext. 212, or use the secure form for more information or to set up an interview.
