Truro Cathedral has had a choir since its doors first opened in 1887. The current choir is something of world class cultural significance that is going from strength to strength here in Cornwall.

To find out more about Truro Cathedral Choir, which sings at seven services each week during term time, click here.

The eighteen boy Choristers rehearse before school every day and give four or five public performances each week. As well as singing to many thousands of people here in Truro, in recent months they have recorded a CD with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.

When boys apply to join the choir, in Year 2 or 3, we are not looking for a “finished” musical product, but rather for potential. We would warmly encourage anyone who thinks their son might enjoy this life-changing opportunity to contact our Director of Music to discuss what the commitment is, and what the benefits are:-

Our Cathedral Choir also has girl Choristers and there is a separate recruitment process for them. They are in the 13 to 18 year old age group as their voices do not change in the way boys’ voices do. We welcome interest from girls currently in their first year at secondary school, and possibly their second year (Years 7 and 8).
