COVID-19 Announcement: Due to the restrictions in place for large community signing and worship, the originally scheduled MAESA Choral Evensong on January 31, 2021 will not take place in Washington National Cathedral. MAESA is working with the National Cathedral and the Cathedral schools to consider alternatives to our traditional choral evensong this program year. In September, MAESA will survey school chaplains and music directors to consider a few options for alternatives such as a virtual session surronding the planning of chapel, the music, and liturgies we use in our Episcopal schools. Questions, please contact us at

MAESA Choral Evensong is a truly remarkable opportunity to participate in a beautiful service, which brings nearly hundreds of Upper/High School students from Episcopal schools throughout the Mid-Atlantic region together with the Cathedral Choir for an inspiring worship experience!
