We are looking to grow our junior choir in the summer term, and will be offering a “Taster” Choir Practice for Years 4 and above before the summer holidays.
If your child is interested, please contact Revd Sharon Francis for more details.
The Classic FM and presenter of the game show “Pointless” – Alexander Armstrong – has spoken about the importance of church and cathedral choirs.
“My background in choral music has meant everything to me. It’s a fantastic grounding in music but it’s a discipline as well. I think you learn gravitas as a chorister, there’s a great dignity to it.
It brings you into contact with a colossal range of literature, it;s very good for your maths, it’s a grounding in performance.
It’s everything that the Brit Academy is trying to do – but times 100
Any child who has been a chorister is destined to have an interesting and fulfilling life“Alexander Armstrong – speaking ahead of a concert at St. Paul’s Cathedral
Alexander, who is now a baritone, attended Durham School and Trinity College, Cambridge on choral scholarships.
