Be a Chorister Afternoon

If your child is in P3 to P5 and loves to sing, join us for a busy afternoon to discover what it's like to be a chorister of St Mary's Cathedral in Edinburgh.

Be a Chorister Afternoon

About Be a Chorister Afternoon

Your child will join the choristers to practise a song with the Cathedral's Master of Music in the beautiful surroundings of the Song School, then visit St Mary's Music School for a sample lesson and afternoon tea, then return to the Cathedral to get dressed in a cassock before heading to the Cathedral to round off the afternoon with a perfomance.

Parents are invited to learn more about the exceptional music and academic education being a chorister provides and to watch the afternoon's singing.

The event is free but places are limited. The only criteria is that your child should enjoy singing and ideally be able to read music.
