Could you be a girl chorister at Gloucester Cathedral?

Where: Gloucester Cathedral

When: Saturday, April 13

Gloucester Cathedral Choir has a famous musical tradition dating back almost 500 years and now you have the opportunity to be part of that tradition as a Girl Chorister.

The choir is searching for girls to join the acclaimed Cathedral Choir in September 2019.

Voice trials will be held on the morning of Saturday, April 13. The choir is specifically interested in hearing girls from current school years 2 and 3. Prior musical training is not necessarily required, as girls will receive full training and support if they are successful at audition.

Girl Choristers have the opportunity to embark on a unique and exhilarating musical education, standing them in good stead for future musical pursuits. They have the thrill of singing in one of the great Mediaeval cathedrals of Europe, and its spectacular acoustic.

The girls enjoy making music with like-minded friends whom they may not have encountered outside and benefit from the inimitable esprit-de-corps of being part of the Cathedral Choir.

Gloucester Cathedral is committed to equal opportunity and increasing participation for girls to sing as a key element of the musical provision in worship. It believes 'equal opportunity' to mean invitation, access and inclusion.
