4th June at Canterbury Cathedral
On Saturday 4 June 2022, Canterbury Cathedral will host auditions for prospective boy choristers currently in school years 3 or 4, to start at the Cathedral in September 2022 or January 2023.
Auditions should be booked in advance with the Cathedral Music Department. Please register here by 12pm on Wednesday 1 June 2022 to receive an audition time.
The Cathedral’s 25 boy choristers are aged between 8 and 13. Resident at Choir House, an ancient and beautiful building next to the Cathedral, and attending St Edmund’s School, they enjoy a fulfilling all-round education, supported by scholarships provided by the Cathedral. All boy choristers study two musical instruments and receive weekly theory lessons.
Ideal candidates should love to sing and possess a good natural ear; from that point, Cathedral music staff undertake to develop boys’ confidence so that they are able to flourish musically, as well as enjoying the challenge and reward of being part of a high-performing team.
