There is no better educational and musical training start for boys and girls aged 7 years and up who love to sing.

The Choir Schools’ Association is here to help parents and youngsters to make the most of this incredible opportunity.

“My wife and I are considering options for my children, which include choir schools.  Talking to the Choir Schools Association helped explain the process, things to consider, things not to worry about and things to be planning for.  For someone at this stage in the journey for our children’s schooling, this knowledge has been invaluable.”

Hear the Choristers

Choristers regularly broadcast on radio, and are often in the recording studio which means there is a wealth of wonderful music to be enjoyed.

You can visit the BBC Radio 3 Choral Evensong site to listen to the weekly live broadcasts from around the country. You can also tune in to BBC Radio 4’s Sunday Worship each week.

Also, the Friends of Cathedral Music website publishes details on both specialist and general recording labels featuring Cathedral, Collegiate and Church choirs.

Another useful site is: choralevensong.org where you will find local sung services. “Choral Evensong is a 45-minute long peace-inducing church service …… allowing listeners time for restful contemplation – church members, agnostics and atheists alike. It is both free of charge and free of religious commitment.”
