Choristerships & Auditions

Being a chorister is demanding but fun. It involves a daily commitment with rehearsals before and after school and services both on weekdays and at weekends. Choristers are given training in musical and vocal skills, and work to a professional standard in the Cathedral Choir. Every year we audition boys and girls to join the Choir.

Being a Chorister

There are many benefits in being a chorister. Boys and girls learn many life skills such as self-discipline, a sense of responsibility and teamwork, language, communication and social skills as well as musical and vocal skills. Their camaraderie, enjoyment of singing and professionalism motivate them and they are driven forward by a desire to become more and more proficient at their singing, and to take more and more responsibility for the sound of the Choir.

All choristers are educated at The King's (Cathedral) School and we recruit both boys and girls from a young age with the goal of providing choristerships for both boys and girls in years 3-8. Could your son or daughter become a chorister in Peterborough Cathedral Choir? Most opportunities are for children in school year 2 to start in the Choir in school year 3, rather than in later years. 

Voice trials in 2016

Voice trials for children in school year 2 will take place on Monday 7th November and Wednesday 9th November 2016, for places in the Cathedral Choir starting in September 2017.
