Being a Girl Chorister; an Outstanding Musical Opportunity

Working in partnership with Truro Cathedral, Truro School is once again proud to be launching our annual Be a Girl Chorister for a Day event.

The ‘Be a Girl Chorister for a Day’ event, on Tuesday 9 November, gives girls the chance to experience life as a chorister, starting with their 8 am morning rehearsal and then a regular school day, ending with the opportunity to sing Evensong with Truro Cathedral Choir.  

The benefits of becoming a chorister at Truro Cathedral are huge. They include participating in live broadcasts, CD recordings, and foreign tours and performing with an outstanding choir directed by specialist professional musicians in one of the South West’s finest buildings. All of Truro Cathedral’s choristers are educated at Truro School. They each receive 25% scholarships and are eligible for additional means-tested support for their five years in Truro Cathedral Choir (ending as they leave Upper Sixth). 

Sofie Palmer is a chorister in the Sixth Form at Truro School. She says of her role, “Being a chorister is an amazing experience that I will fondly look back on for the rest of my life. I’ve been fortunate to have sung in some incredible venues, including St Paul’s Cathedral. Between the brilliant music and one-to-one training, I’ve been able to build on my musical talent.” 

Any girl currently in Year 8 can apply to be a chorister, regardless of academic background and faith. Girls start in the choir as they enter Year 9 in September, following their audition.
