While singers are encouraged to join at the beginning of the year, recruitment for CCCY singers is ongoing.

Cathedral Choir of Children and Youth

The Cathedral Choir of Children and Youth (CCCY) is a city-wide choir program that fosters a lifelong enjoyment and appreciation of music through the singing of sacred choral compositions. The program, which is based on the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) Voice for Life curriculum, is open to children and youth age 6 to 13. No prior music experience is required. Choristers have the opportunity to develop musical confidence, make new friends and experience music education and faith formation. Directed by Christopher Wheeler, the choir performs once a month at Christ Church Cathedral and other churches and venues throughout Greater Cincinnati. Older choristers have the opportunity to audition for placement in the advanced “CCCY Singers” in addition to their choir participation.


While choristers are encouraged to join the choir at the beginning of the season, interested young people may be accepted at other times during the year. The CCCY season runs September through May. Contact Christopher Wheeler for full details.
