What's On for Frideswide Voices

'Be a Chorister for a Day' taster events

Each year, the Cathedral hosts a selection of taster events for girls, boys and their families who may be interested in choristership. FV typically holds 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. 

Forthcoming dates, for entry in September 2023:

  • Saturday 4th March
  • Saturday 20th May

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. 

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 FV chorister entails, and ask any questions.
