Chorister for a day

CFD

Saturday 24 August 2:00-5:00pm

Being a chorister is a fantastic opportunity for children to develop their hidden talents and become accomplished musicians.

Throughout the year choristers work with visiting choral experts and conductors, and are often involved in large-scale performances with professional groups such as the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and State Opera Company.

Choristers rehearse weekly on Fridays: As well as learning new repertoire, they have sight-singing and technique lessons before joining the lay clerks for a full choir rehearsal.

Choristers receive musical training and recognition in small groups through the Voice for Life programme, according to individual ability and experience.

There are no fees associated with the choir. All music and uniform is provided, and choristers are eligible for scholarships to many of Adelaide’s leading Anglican schools.

The St Peter’s Cathedral Chorister for a Day event takes place annually in August. Children between the ages of 8 and 11 can find out what it’s like to be a Cathedral chorister.

Children are taken on a tour and learn the secrets of the Cathedral. They rehearse with the trebles of the choir and watch a video about life in the Cathedral Choir. Each child is “buddied-up” and experiences first-hand what it is like to be a Cathedral chorister. The day ends with the children singing evensong with the Cathedral choir.

Parents are warmly invited to afternoon tea before evensong, and encouraged to stay for the service and see their child sing with the choir.

This year’s Chorister for a day will be held from 2:00-5:00pm on Saturday 24 August.

If a child is interested in coming to the next Chorister for a Day please call 8267 4551 to register your interest and you will be contacted.
