Boys' Chapel Choir

The Boys' Chapel Choir consists of 35-45  boys from Years 4-8.  The choir sings the anthem and leads the school in the Friday Chapel service. During the year, the choir sings at the school services at the Cathedral, and at numerous special events for the school and out in the community. 

Rehearsals are held on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 8.00-8.30am.

Membership of the Chapel Choir follows successful membership of the Boys' Training Choir and the availability of a place.

Pupils wishing to be part of the Boys' Chapel Choir should initially approach Mrs Lowe with the request to join.

Once in the Chapel Choir, choristers wear the maroon cassock and are known as 'probationers'.  Once the Choir Director is satisfied that a probationer has demonstrated sufficient ability to concentrate, punctuality to rehearsals and competence in his singing, the probationer is awarded his surplice in a ceremony in which he affirms his desire to strive for excellence in his singing and to lead the school in worship.

Choristers are also able to work through the syllabus of the RSCM Voice for Life course to earn a ribbon.  Ribbons are awarded in grades: light blue, dark blue, and red.
