The year 2021-2022 will mark the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Cathedral Girls’ Choir by Bishop Shane Parker, who was Dean of the Cathedral at the time. It remains to this day the only all-girl liturgical choir in Canada and is an integral and vibrant part of the Cathedral’s music ministry and outreach. Under the leadership of founding director Tim Piper and (since 2012) myself, the Choir has grown in its confidence and capacity, toured the UK and Europe (2012 & 2016), Asia (2019) as well as the US and Canada and, like our Choir of Boys, been a gateway for countless girls and young women to a life of faith, service and leadership. Notwithstanding COVID-19 and the restrictions currently in place, planning will soon begin to mark and celebrate this milestone!
