A CATHEDRAL is offering children the opportunity to be a chorister.

A taster session is taking place at St Asaph Cathedral on Sunday, November 17 from 10am.

Any child in school in year three or above can join the session,

The Precentor at St Asaph Cathedral, Revd Canon Rex Matthias, said: “Singing is a fun activity and great way for children to make new friends. The choristers have the best possible musical education as well as having the unique opportunity to sing regularly in the Cathedral.

“The advantages of being a chorister and singing are well documented. Many parents comment on the improvement in their child’s overall development both educationally and socially."

St Asaph chorister Grace Dixon, of Holywell, made it to the finals of the BBC Chorister of the Year Competition. Grace was one of eight, four boys and four girls, from across the UK to make it to the finals.

St Asaph Cathedral Choir has appeared on national radio and television, both in live and recorded radio broadcasts and has featured in BBC TV Songs of Praise. They have released two CD’s and have appeared in concert alongside Russell Watson and Aled Jones.

The “Come and be a Cathedral Chorister” morning will run until 12pm.
