“My experience at Saint Patrick’s gave my life as a musician a positive sense of direction and purpose it could not otherwise have had. I’d do it all again in a flash”
Peter McMahon, chorister (1979-82)
Theatre director, Hamburg, Germany
Becoming a chorister at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral opens a world of exciting performing opportunities including regular broadcasts, concerts, recordings & tours.
All choristers attend the Cathedral Choir School a co-educational National School which, established in 1432, is Ireland’s oldest school and its only specialist choir school.
In addition to their school education, choristers receive a first class musical education for free including free instrumental and vocal tuition care of our visiting team of music tutors. We also have generous bursaries for those studying privately.
“My six years in the Cathedral Choir taught
me focus, flair and harmony and instilled in me a love of choral music that is impossible to shake off ”
Eppie Caffrey, Chorister 2005-11
