Choristers wanted

April 24, 2024  Posted in: Choir School, News

Could my son or daughter become a Cathedral Chorister?

If they’re currently in 2nd or 3rd class and enjoy singing, then very possibly!

Aged between 8 & 14, the choristers have been singing daily in the Cathedral for nearly 600 years, and today are still educated in the Cathedral Choir School, which, also established in 1432 is Ireland’s oldest National School and sole remaining Choir School.

Benefits include:

A free first class musical education including:
free vocal training
music theory tuition
& generous bursaries for instrumental tuition 

Fabulous performance opportunities & experiences including:
Regular TV & Radio Broadcasts
Recordings (6 commercial CD recordings to date)
and the choristers’ favourite – Tours
recent trips include Sweden (2019), Denmark (2022) & New York (2024)

There’s far more besides….. so if you have a child who is currently in 2nd or 3rd class and you’d like to learn more, just click here. You can even sign up to join us for one of our open afternoons by clicking here.

Becoming a chorister begins a lifelong love of music, and you never know, next time you may just recognise one of these faces!
