An abbreviated ‘Be a Chorister for a Day’ event will take place on Sunday 20th June 2021.  Owing to social distancing measures and Covid guidelines, it will not be possible to follow the usual interactive programme.  Families of prospective choristers will instead be invited to attend the Solemn Mass in the Cathedral on Sunday 20th June, which will be followed by a short presentation on the Cathedral Choir by Cathedral and Choir School staff.

Voice trials will take place on Tuesday 22nd / Wednesday 23rd June 2021 for boys and girls.  A second round of auditions for girls will take place on Saturday 26th June.
