Become a Cathedral Chorister…

Become a Cathedral Chorister…

Auditions for new choristers to join in 2020 are to be held on Saturday 9 November 2019. Boys, now aged 7 or 8, who enjoy singing, are invited to try out for the choir. All of the 25 choristers attend St Edmund’s School in Canterbury and there are substantial scholarships available.

Master of the Choristers and Cathedral Organist Dr David Flood said: “Don’t wait until November if you are interested. I would be delighted to meet and advise at any convenient time. It is not necessary to have had any musical training, I am just looking for potential and I will give lots of encouragement, help about how to prepare for the audition and can answer any queries and give all sorts of information.  Above all music-making in the Cathedral is fun and the life of a chorister is a wonderful and unique experience.”

Canterbury Cathedral choir enjoys the very highest reputation across the world and performs to many thousands of people every year. The choir records regularly and their CDs are highly regarded.  The choristers have the opportunity to participate in major tours including a visit to Rome last October and a two-week tour of America in April 2018.
