The Cathedral Choir has been an important part of the musical life of Honolulu for nearly 150 years. Composed of Choral Scholars and volunteer singers, the choir provides a strong, living tradition of choral music, central to the Cathedral’s liturgy, and is dedicated to the highest standards of performance of choral literature from Gregorian Chant and Renaissance polyphony, through works by contemporary composers. The choir sings weekly at the 10.30 am Sunday Eucharist, on the first Sunday of the month at 5.30 pm for Evensong, and for many other feasts and concerts throughout the year.
The Hawaiian Choir sings at the 8 am Holy Eucharist every Sunday. They support the congregation in the singing of Hawaiian hymns and service music as well as offering an anthem in Hawaiian.
The choirs combine to sing for Thanksgiving, the Feast Day Celebration of King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma in November, Christmas Day, Feast of the Holy Name on New Year’s Day, Pentecost and other major feast days.
