The Cathedral Music Ministry has a rich history of adding beauty to the Cathedral worship experience, performing the music of composers such as Theodore Bogdanos, Anna Gallos, Alexander Gretchaninov, Dimitrios Pappas, George Raptis, Nancy Takis, Tikey Zes, and many more, in addition to arrangements by the late Maestro Dr. Dino Anagnost, music director of the choir for many years. The renowned Cathedral Choir, formed by a core of music professionals and volunteers, is featured most Sundays at the Archdiocesan Cathedral.
The Cathedral Youth Choir was started by Maestro Tsourakis in September 2021 to teach the cathedral youth community about music and the hymns of the church. The CYC made its debut concert performance at the annual Cathedral Christmas Concert, "The Sounds of Christmas" in the presence of Archbishop Elpidophoros of America and Archbishop Demetrios, Former of America.
