The 2018-2019 Chorister Year will kick off this Saturday, October 6.
We will meet on Saturdays in October and November to prepare for Advent Lessons and Carols.
A more detailed calendar and schedule are available online below. Your child in invited in the following manner:
Bishops Choir for ages 6-8 -year-olds meets from 4-5 pm. This choir is the training ground for Choristers. We work on music literacy, pitch recognition and beginning vocal training. We use instruments and music through movement.
Cathedral Choir for ages 9-13 meets from 5-6:30. The Cathedral Choir performs for Evensongs and Lessons and Carols. We study the Royal School of Music Curriculum and the children earn medals based on merit according to the standards of the Royal School of Church Music. Students learn to read music and sing using proper breathing and tone production techniques. Of paramount importance is the deepening of their understanding of prayer and liturgy.
Schola Cantorum for ages 14+ meets from 6:30-8:15. The Schola Cantorum studies at the highest levels offered by The Royal School of Church Music. We continue the work which began in Cathedral Choir and delve deeper into the subject matter with more complex music and liturgical foundations. Schola Cantorum performs at Evensongs and Lessons and Carols as well as various other events throughout the year.
If you plan to attend this Saturday, please arrive early to fill out the necessary paperwork.
