A taste of chorister life

Truro Cathedral choristers in cassocks clicking  their fingers with younger children joining in

On Saturday 26 January we welcomed 11 boys to the cathedral for a taste of what it's like to be part of Truro Cathedral Choir in our annual 'Be A Chorister For a Day' event.  The boys, all aged between 6 and 9, enjoyed a range of activities including making finger puppets and some games.  They got to go 'behind the scenes', taking part in a rehearsal with the choristers in the crypt of the cathedral before performing alongside them at the afternoon Cushion Concert.   Director of Music, Christopher Gray, said "I really look forward to this event - it's always great fun!  Its brilliant for our choristers to be able to show others their own age what they do on a daily basis and for any boys thinking that they might like to be a chorister to find out what it might be like.  This year I especially enjoyed the collective performance of Somewhere in My Memory from Home Alone - the visiting boys had never sung the piece before that morning and their performance was just brilliant.  I extend my sincere thanks to all those that took part and made it such a great day."
