Music Ministry

The Cathedral serves a large multi-cultural and inter-generational congregation of worshipers from throughout the metropolitan Washington area. It also welcomes many visitors from across the nation and around the world. As the mother church of the Archdiocese of Washington, the Cathedral offers a rich variety of liturgical music to serve this diverse urban congregation.

From weekday Masses with solo cantor to solemn liturgies with choir, soloists, and instrumentalists; from solo recitals on our Lively-Fulcher organ to full concerts with choir and orchestra; the Cathedral’s Office of Music Ministry strives to enrich the spiritual lives of all who pass through the Cathedral doors, day after day, week after week, year after year.

These ensembles form the backbone of Music Ministry at St. Matthew’s: the Schola Cantorum, the Contemporary Choir, the Festival Singers and the Spanish Music Ministry. View more

You can support the Music Ministry in many ways. We seek talented singers of various voice parts for the ensembles. You also can provide financial support by making direct gifts as a Friend of Music.
