Join the Cathedral Choir

Singing with a Cathedral Choir offers children a unique musical and educational opportunity and some of our choristers have become leading figures in professional music, art, the media and many other fields. We recruit boys into the Cathedral Choir from Year 4 and girls from Year 7.

If your child is interested in auditioning for the choir, please email our Acting Head of Music, David Hardie on david.hardie@birminghamcathedral.com, attaching a sound recording of them singing Away in a Manger in Ab major (first note Eb). Promising candidates are then invited to the Cathedral for audition. David will happily answer any queries you may have.

We occasionally have vacancies for adult student or professional singers, including for soprano choral scholars and female altos. Please email David Hardie on the address above for further information, attaching your CV and an application form which can be found here.
