The Girls’ Choir sang its first service at Canterbury Cathedral in January 2014. More than 500 people were in the congregation to witness the event, which was followed by the international media. Since then, the choir has performed at numerous important occasions in Canterbury, most notably at the occasion of the visit to the Cathedral of HM the Queen.
In 2015, the Girls’ Choir released its debut CD recording, which is currently on sale at the cathedral shop and is also available to purchase at the Summer Concert. Further recordings are due for release during 2017.
