Recently established to allow ex-choristers the opportunity to continue performing, the Youth Choir at the Cathedral is going from strength to strength, with the number of performance opportunities increasing.
As Choir School to the Metropolitan Cathedral, the College is home to the boy and girl choristers from age 11. The choristers perform in College-based concerts and events on top of their usual Cathedral duties.
Pupils and students who love to sing can join one of our many choirs at the College, performing a wide variety of sacred and secular pieces.
College Consort is a high-quality choir and membership is by audition as there are only 18 places. Each member is expected to be an experienced singer with excellent sight reading skills as the choir often has to learn music at short notice. Consort is often the choir of choice for important occasions both in and out of school.
