The Junior Choir was set up in September 2013. It gives around 3 concerts a year and also sings choral evensong each term in the Lady Chapel.

Does it cost anything to join?

No, the junior choir is free to join. The only expenses to parents come by way of £8 for a choir polo shirt and then for the end of year social activity. 

Is it the same as the Cathedral Choir?

No. The Junior Choir is separate to the Cathedral Choir. Although children do not automatically progress from the Junior Choir to the Cathedral Choir, we are working to make the Junior Choir the natural recruitment ground for the Cathedral Choir. Within the Junior Choir, there is a 'progress group' for children who are showing increasing potential. These children will have occasional extra small-group tuition with either the Director of Choral Outreach or the Director or Music in order to pin-point areas that we can assist them with in their vocal development.
