The Cathedral of the Incarnation is not only a historic wonder in the village but a place of worship for a dedicated…More congregation. Since its founding, music has been an important part of cathedral life. It offers a varied choral program, a concert series and the largest pipe organ on Long Island.
The Cathedral Choir of Men & Boys is one of the few still remaining in the U.S. and Canada and was founded in 1883. Made up of boys, teens and professional men, the choir sings a vast repertoire of choral music masterpieces.
The Cathedral Girls' Choir was founded years later in 1933 and is comprised of 26 girls. They too perform a large repertoire of music. In 1998, the Schola Cantorum was established to expand the repertoire available for the Girls' Choir to sing and also give adult women an opportunity to participate.
Worship is offered Sundays at 8, 9:30 and 11:15 a.m. and at 8 and 10 a.m. during the summer; Tuesday-Thursday at 12:15 p.m. in the Lady Chapel; and on the first Sunday of the month from October-May a Choral Evensong is offered at 4 p.m. using the traditional Cathedral model.
The Very Reverend Theodore W. Bean, Jr. serves as dean.
