The Friends of the Choir
Founded by long-time Director of Music, Dr. Lloyd Cast, The Friends of The Choir of The Cathedral of All Saints is a non-profit organization that seeks to provide financial, logistical, and administrative support primarily to The Choir of Men and Boys as well as to other choral ensembles across the United States and abroad. Each year, The Friends provide partial and in some cases full scholarships to all choristers who attend the Royal School of Church Music’s annual Training Course for Boys in Montreal. The Friends provide funding for the choir’s publicity, sponsor concerts, fund a variety of visiting artists and conductors, assist with chorister recruitment, and provide support for choir travel. The Friend’s membership roster contains many individuals, families and businesses who give of their time and money to support this unique choral tradition.
In addition to their support of the choir, The Friends of the Choir provide full financial support for The Lloyd Cast Organ Fellowship, a two-year full-time residency for a deserving young musician. This Fellowship, named for The Cathedrals’ long-serving Director of Music, is unique in the country in its support for emerging organists.
