History and Mission

The Choir School is an auditioned community choir offering music education and performance opportunities to talented young men and women from every background and every corner of the Charlotte region. Originally conceived as a boys choir in the classic European tradition, the school has grown to include five distinct choirs whose members range in age from seven to eighteen.

For over two decades our mission has remained the same: to enrich and strengthen young lives through excellent, rigorous music education and choral performance.

Each year we perform for thousands of audience members, offering three concerts from our home at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Uptown Charlotte as well as performances throughout the region. Each summer our tour choirs travel to destinations throughout the United States, performing for audiences all along the way. Every four years our high school students, The MasterSingers, travel to England to perform and to experience first hand the roots of the Anglican choral tradition. In July 2019, The MasterSingers served in residence at Durham Cathedral.
