     Choir of St. Thomas's Church

    The choir was established by St. Thomas Church in New York City with the Choir School being founded in 1919.  The choir school normally has between 35-40 boys each year who become known as professional singers and take academic and choral studies and is just one of four residential church schools left in the world.   The all male choir of men and boys from the choir school appear in five church services per week, make regular concert performances and have made several recordings.  They have regularly made international tours through Europe and have appeared at the Vatican, King's College Cambridge and Westminster Abbey and St. Paul's Cathedral in London.  They have also made appearances with artists such as Jessye Norman and Placido Domingo and various national orchestras as well as giving the later televised world-premiere of Requiem by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber.   Alongside their normal recording repertoire they have appeared with Carly Simon on her song "Let the River Run".  The conductor is currently John Scott, who is a renowned master of choristers and organist.
