Blackburn Cathedral Choir looking for new recruits

Blackburn Cathedral Choir has just a few places for lucky new choristers this year, with their new-look socially distanced choir.

Being a chorister at Blackburn Cathedral has many benefits.

“First and foremost, joining the choir opens the door to a unique musical education, in an environment where boys and girls meet and make friends with similar interests to their own. Choristers also learn how to work in a team, and how to integrate socially too.

“At the cathedral we work to the very highest musical levels, so choristers learn to focus and concentrate, aspiring to professional standards, and achieving their absolute full potential.

“There’s also evidence that being a chorister can boost academic achievement (and this evidence is supported by several current chorister parents!).

“A chorister’s education goes beyond music – singing in foreign languages soon becomes second nature, and choristers also find membership of the choir a vehicle for spiritual development as they learn about the Christian Faith.”

Parents of Boys and Girls in year 3 & 4 should contact john.robinson@blackburncathedral.co.uk for more information.
