Children's Choir & Youth Choir

Salford Cathedral is committed to giving opportunities to children and young people from all backgrounds to come together and sing in a fun and relaxed musical atmosphere. As part of our Music Foundation, choristers from as young as seven will be able to join a choir at the Cathedral and be supported in their practical musical education through active participation in the liturgies of the Cathedral.

We have created two new Cathedral choirs for children and young people to sing at the Cathedral:

  • Our Children’s Choir is open to anyone aged 7 – 12 years old and meets every Tuesday and Wednesday during term time from 4.15 – 5.30pm in Cathedral House.
  • Our Youth Choir is open to anyone aged 13 – 19 years old and meets every Tuesday during term time from 5.45 –6.45pm in Cathedral House

Led by the Cathedral Director of Music, Alex Patterson, with a team of Choral Scholars, both choirs sing a varied repertoire of both sacred and secular music spanning the centuries and sing for a range of liturgies at the Cathedral, including Masses and Sung Vespers.

There are no auditions or subscription fees to join either choir.

For more information about joining the choirs, please contact the Cathedral Director of Music, Alex Patterson alex.patterson@dioceseofsalford.org.uk
