Youth Choir

What is the Youth Choir?

One of the best choirs of its kind in the country, the Cathedral Youth Choir was founded in 1999 and is made up of talented young singers in School Years 10 to 13, from schools and colleges all around Gloucestershire.

The choir is conducted by the Assistant Director of Music and an audition is required to join.

What do they do?

The choir meets twice a week during term time to rehearse after school on a Monday and Thursday, and sings Evensong every Thursday.

They also participate at other major services during the Church year, including Christmas Midnight Mass, Ordinations and Carol Services.

The choir sings a wide range of music that includes spirituals, folksongs and other secular music alongside the more traditional Anglican repertoire.

Away from the Cathedral, the Youth Choir has a varied programme of concerts, tours and social events.

What are the benefits?

  • Free musical training during rehearsals with the Cathedral music staff

  • A chance to meet new friends and share your love of singing

  • Opportunities to sing in one of the most beautiful Cathedrals in the world every week

  • Go on concert trips and overseas tours with the Choir
