Junior Choir

The future of Cathedral music

Gloucester Cathedral Junior Choir was re-established in 2014.  The children, aged between 6 and 12 years, enjoy their weekly singing rehearsal as well as performing in concerts and services.   The choir currently consists of around 50 members, who represent at least 20 schools in the diocese.

The choir form an integral part of the Cathedral’s worship on the 2nd Sunday of every month, and are a vital part of the Cathedral’s Vision and Strategy which encourages everyone to come and use this beautiful building.  Singing in the Cathedral, with its wonderful acoustic, is an experience which remains with a child throughout his/her life. 

The Choir regularly sing elsewhere in the county, and further afield.  They recently sang at Bishop Rachel’s inauguration; at the Gloucester Three Choir’s Festival, alongside the Philharmonia Orchestra; and regularly go on mini tours to perform at other venues.  These have included the Cathedral Churches of Brecon and Worcester, and Malmesbury Abbey.
