Our Choral Tradition
Being a chorister is a wonderful start for any young musician and an experience they will treasure for the rest of their lives.
Training is held after school during term time and performances take place in our beautiful church every Sunday, Monday (Girls only) and Tuesdays (Boys only).
All choristers receive first class training in choral musicianship including vocal technique, aural skills and music theory, so we are proud to have produced many successful musicians and paved the way for choral and organ scholarships at top universities.
Many are surprised to find out that being a member of the choir costs nothing to join – in fact all choristers receive pocket money in return for their attendance.
Who can become a Chorister?
Anyone can become a chorister, so long as they are initially able to recall notes and short melodies on the piano, stand/sit still and are able to read to a sufficient standard.
Playing an instrument is not a requirement – we hope all candidates are keen to sing, eager to learn and willing to commit to a demanding but highly rewarding schedule.
