The Journey of the ‘Coronation Choristers’

Truro School and Truro Cathedral are pleased to present this film that shows the incredible journey of our seven ‘Coronation choristers’ Millie, Evie, Imogen, Chloe, Lowenna, Bryher and Oriel.

The film documents their response to the initial invitation to join the Coronation Choir for the Coronation of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla on the 6th of May 2023, their experience of singing at the Coronation and returning to Cornwall to overwhelming support and pride from the Cornish community.

The girls sang with the choirs of Westminster Abbey and HM Chapel Royal Choir, St James’s Palace. They also joined young girl choristers from Methodist College, Belfast, making history together as the first female choristers to sing at a coronation.
