New Choristers Always Needed – Find out more!

Schools and cathedrals are setting new dates all the time to showcase their schools through wonderful virtual tours, as well as online events specifically about choristers. We are seeing a return to favourites like Be a Chorister for a Day when children can visit and hopefully leave determined to join the choir!

Watch this space for new events as well as checking our schools list to contact schools direct about great opportunities for young singers. It really is a chance of a lifetime for 7+ children so take action now!

January 2024

  • Christ Church Cathedral School, Oxford, is holding its ‘Be a Chorister for an Afternoon’ event on Saturday 13th January 2024, 2.30 – 7.00 pm. Boys in current Years 2, 3, 4 & 5 are invited to join the school for an afternoon to look around the School and Boarding House, rehearse with the Cathedral Choir, and sing at Evensong with the Choristers. All Cathedral Choristers receive generous bursaries. Being a Cathedral Chorister is a life-changing opportunity. Boys learn self-discipline, social skills, a sense of responsibility, and teamwork, as well as outstanding musical and vocal skills. For more details, visit, or email the Registrar, Laura Kemp, at
  • Salisbury Cathedral is holding their Girls’ Voice Trials on Saturday 20th January 2024 (for girls in Year 3, 4, 5). The voice trials are the cathedral’s audition process for selecting new choristers. They involve a short singing piece, aural tests and sight singing. All Chorister hopefuls should have every opportunity to prepare, so pre-auditions can be arranged throughout the year. Find out more and register on the Salisbury Cathedral website.
  • Llandaff Cathedral is holding its next Chorister Open Day on Saturday, 27th January 2023, from 2:15 until 6:15 pm. The open day will provide an opportunity to meet current choristers, sing with the choir in a rehearsal and service, and enjoy a tour of the cathedral, including a chance to play the organ. Parents will meet the Director of Music and hear more about being a chorister at Llandaff Cathedral. Book a place for the Llandaff Cathedral Chorister Open Day.

New recruits are needed EVERY year so even if a school/cathedral is not holding an open event in the near future it’s worth a call!
