The Choir of Saint Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue, is considered to be the leading ensemble in the Anglican choral tradition in the United States. Directed since 2004 by John Scott, formerly Organist and Director of Music at St Paul’s Cathedral in London, the Saint Thomas Choir performs regularly with the period instrument ensemble, Concert Royal, or with the Orchestra of St. Luke's as part of its own Concert Series, yet its primary raison d'Ítre is to provide music for five choral services each week. Live webcasts of all choral services and further information about Saint Thomas Church, including recordings of the choir, may be found at
Supplementing its choral services and concert series, over the past three decades, the choir has toured throughout the United States and Europe, with performances at Westminster Abbey and St. Paul's Cathedral in London, Kings College, Cambridge and the Aldeburgh Festival. Highlights include performing for a Papal Mass at the Vatican in 2004 and Bach’s Saint Matthew Passion for the opening concert of the Mexico Festival in Mexico City in 2007.
All the boy choristers attend The Saint Thomas Choir School. Founded in 1919 by T. Tertius Noble, it is the only church-affiliated residential choir school in the United States, and one of only two such schools in the world dedicated to educating choristers exclusively. Saint Thomas Choir School offers extensive musical training and a rich curriculum for boys in grades three through eight. Further information about the school is available at
