Be a Chorister Afternoon, St Mary’s Music School
May 6 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Being a chorister, and part of the award-winning Choir of St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in Edinburgh, is to be part of a unique tradition that began in 1880. Around 16 boys and girls make up the chorister element of the Choir and over a five-year period they receive an exceptional musical and academic education, divided between St Mary’s Cathedral and St Mary’s Music School.
In this special afternoon, we aim to give children and parents an insight into what life is like as a chorister. We welcome Primary Pupils P3-P5 who enjoy singing for a special opportunity to participate alongside the Choristers of St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral.
We begin the afternoon with some fun warm-ups before we learn some new music together. There will be a chance to visit St Mary’s Music School and to have afternoon tea and the day ends with a performance at the Cathedral, which parents are most welcome to attend.
There are limited places, so enroll early to avoid disappointment!
Choristers are age 9 to 12 and are full-time pupils at St Mary’s Music School. You can find out more about being a chorister here. Financial support is available.
