Since its establishment the choir has boasted a consistent number of 35-40 children.
Children in the choir wear a blue polo shirt with an embroidered logo which was the result of a logo design competition among the children of the choir.
The Junior Choir rehearses at the cathedral once a week on a Wednesday from 4.30 - 6.00pm. It is directed by Stephen Mannings who is ably assisted in supervising and supporting the children by Jack Watson and choir parent supervisors. Choir membership is free.
The Junior Choir is a much smaller time commitment than the main Cathedral Choir. Over time the children learn more about what the Cathedral Choir is and what is involved in being a Cathedral chorister. They also focus on developing their voices and learning to read music. It is hoped that it will then be easier to recruit children to the Cathedral Choir from the Junior Choir. We encourage probationers for Cathedral Choir to join the Junior Choir to augment their learning process and develop their voices. There are currently around ten boy and girl probationers in the Junior Choir.
