Could you be a Girl Chorister?


Could you be a Girl Chorister at Gloucester Cathedral? Auditions are being held this April.

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. We are searching for Girls to join the acclaimed Cathedral Choir in September 2018. 

Voice trials will be held on the afternoon of Saturday 21 April 2018, for places starting in September 2018.  We are specifically interested in hearing girls from current school years 2 & 3.   Prior musical training is not necessarily required, as girls will receive full training and support if they are successful at audition.

We are always pleased to hear from girls who are interested in joining the choir.

If you would like more information about being a girl chorister at Gloucester Cathedral and to register for an audition slot, please email Nia Llewelyn Jones, Conductor of the Girl Choristers: 

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. We believe ‘equal opportunity’ to mean invitation, access and inclusion.
