In partnership with Truro School, girl
As with the boy choristers, being a girl chorister can be a wonderful experience for many reasons; performing music by great composers with an outstanding choir directed by specialist professional musicians, taking part in live broadcasts for television and radio, CD recordings and foreign tours, and being part of a close team with a special purpose and a strong sense of identity.
Choirgirls attend Truro School and join the choir as they enter Year 9, leaving at the end of Year 13 (Upper Sixth Form). Scholarships and bursaries are available to all choristers with the aim that selection is based purely on ability.
The official girl chorister auditions take place at Truro School in January, where girls are asked to prepare a song of their choice. They will be assessed on their voice, sight-reading ability, musical ear and general aptitude (for example, concentration and commitment). Girls must also pass the school’s academic selection criteria.
