'Be a Chorister for a Day' taster events
Each year, the Cathedral hosts a selection of taster events for girls, boys and their families. Frideswide Voices typically hold one 'Be a Chorister' afternoon in the Spring term, and a second in the Summer term before auditions (usually held in mid-June), for girls to experience what it might be like to become a Frideswide chorister.
Our 'Be a Chorister' events for entry in September 2024 will be held on Saturday 9 March and Saturday 11 May 2024. To register for either event please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
These events are open to girls in Year 1 and Year 2 (older girls are welcome, though families should be aware that entry to the choir is not normally available after this point), for entry in September of Year 3 (the academic year in which girls turn eight).
Each event includes the opportunity to:
- try on some choir robes
- play musical games and learn songs with Frideswide Voices' tutors
- have a tour of the Cathedral and College
- join a rehearsal with the choristers
- sing with the Choir at a service in the Cathedral
There will also be a Q&A session when parents can hear from a panel of staff, parents and girls about what being a Frideswide Voices chorister entails, and ask any questions.
Families do not necessarily need to have attended a taster event to apply, though we are always glad to meet young singers before our auditions.
