How to Become a Chorister

We welcome any enquiry from parents of boys between the ages of 7-13. The Director of Music is happy to speak to anybody interested about what we do and the commitment involved, and to arrange an audition. The audition consists of singing something very short and simple, and lots of opportunity to chat about choir life. Usually, new boys spend some time in a trainee group, known as “probationers”, meeting once a week, and then gradually being introduced to the full commitment.
