Choir Voice Trials 2013

Choir Voice Trials 2013

Canterbury Cathedral Choir is looking to award substantial scholarships to talented boys who would like to join them in September 2014. Auditions, for a long time referred to as a Voice Trial, will be held on 9th November 2013.

Don’t wait until then, though! Any boy who is 7 or 8 years old and who enjoys singing can be considered and the Cathedral organist, David Flood, will be delighted to meet and advise them at any convenient time. It is not necessary to have had any musical training at all: it just potential that Dr Flood is keen to see. He will give lots of encouragement, help about how to prepare for the audition and can answer any queries and give all sorts of information. He makes sure that all the music-making in the Cathedral is fun and the life of a chorister is a wonderful and unique experience.

The choristers, all 25 of them, enjoy the excellent facilities of St Edmund’s School, Canterbury and receive very substantial scholarships from the Cathedral. The Cathedral Choir House has recently enjoyed a £2 million renovation.

During the last year the choir have been featured on national television and radio and in April 2014 will make a tour to Norway. Canterbury Cathedral choir enjoys the very highest reputation across the world and performs to many thousands of people every year, at home and through radio and television. Their recent CD “Ceremony” was heralded by the Sunday Times as “world class”.

The life of a chorister is full of excitement and the huge reward of being part of such a special team. It is the chance of a lifetime.
