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!

  • Wells Cathedral is holding its annual Be a Chorister for a Day, where children can experience what it is like to be a Cathedral Chorister. The day is open to children aged between 7 and 9, there are fun singing workshops, and the day ends with them taking part in the Evensong service alongside the Cathedral Choir. Children taking part do not need to be trained singers, they just need to enjoy singing and want to take part in the day! This year’s event will take place on Saturday 16th September 2023. To register for a place, please contact the Cathedral Music office via

  • 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.

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!

Follow us on Twitter @CSAChoir. We often share dates and details of forthcoming open days and chorister recruitment events!
