Choristers in grades four to eight rehearse each morning before school and sing evensong in the Cathedral on certain weekdays. As the choir evolves, the choristers will sing a regular pattern of services every week.
Admission to the program is by audition. We encourage auditions from children who are learning a musical instrument, those who like to sing or who simply enjoy music. We are not looking for direct experience, but rather, we are looking for musical potential, enthusiasm and a capacity for team play. Upon admission to the program, and in recognition of their commitment, each is chorister awarded a renewable bursary to offset their Cathedral School tuition fees.
