Saturday 28th November 2015
Following previous successful Chorister Open Days, Exeter Cathedral is hosting a similar opportunity for children on Saturday 28th November 2015. This is open to boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 9 who enjoy singing. It is a great chance for young people to be encouraged and coached by professional musicians in an inspirational setting.
The children will have a great time with the current choristers, rehearsing and then singing with them in the Cathedral. In addition they will have a special opportunity to take part in the annual Christingle Service. They will hear all about the choristers’ daily routine, radio and television broadcasts, recordings and tours, and have the opportunity to ask lots of questions. No previous experience is required; all are welcome to attend this day of discovery and information. There is an optional programme for parents – please do attend as much or as little of the day as you would like to.
Although we are keen to attract potential choristers, more importantly, we hope that the day will be an exciting and informal opportunity for children to see behind the scenes and learn all about the rich and varied life of a chorister, as well as being a unique chance to sing alongside the choristers inExeter’s Cathedral.
There are no charges for the day and lunch is included. Further details and an application form are available below:
