Middle Choir

Middle Choir

Talented Young Singers

The Cathedral Middle Choir was formed in September 2019. The choir is an intermediate step between the Junior Choir and Youth Choir, with the aim of further developing the musicianship of young people. Young people can join the Middle Choir from school year 6 and will leave at the end of school year 9 (when they will be encouraged to progress into the Cathedral Youth Choir). The choir regularly joins with both the Junior and Youth choirs, helping ease the transition between the three choirs.

The choir’s main duty is leading the singing in the Family Eucharist on the second Sunday of each month. Additionally, the choir sings at many other cathedral events and services, including the annual Cathedral Choirs Concert in Michaelmas term, as well as occasional paid engagements such as weddings and funerals. 

Rehearsals are on Saturday morning during term-time, 11am - 12noon, in the Cathedral Song School (in the North Transept near the Treasury).

How do I join the Cathedral Middle Choir?

We are always keen to welcome potential new members. If you would like to learn more about the choir, please contact our Sub-Organist, James Mitchell (james.mitchell@gloucestercathedral.org.uk) or the Music Department Manager, Helen Sims (helen.sims@gloucestercathedral.org.uk; Tel: 01452 508212).

We really look forward to hearing from you!

Will there be an audition? 

The choir is non auditioned, but each child will have an informal meeting with the choir director (normally just after their first rehearsal) in order to check vocal range/prior experience etc.
