Be a Chorister for a Day
The Choral Foundation is delighted to open registration for the Chorister Open Day which will take place on Saturday 23rd September 2017 from 2pm. Local boys aged 7 to 9 years who are genuinely interested in finding out more about becoming a chorister at the Chapel Royal Hampton Court Palace are invited to our open day to enjoy a choral workshop, take part in a concert and then enjoy some afternoon tea with the choristers. Places are strictly limited but available to boys of all musical abilities and academic backgrounds who think they have what it takes to be a Chapel Royal chorister.
This will be the 6th year the Choral Foundation has run an open day, and we are always delighted with the enthusiasm of the candidates. It is wonderful that we are able to take boys with no musical background and provide them with a first class education for free. This is a life changing experience and the Choral Foundation is proud to support boys from every background and enable them to fulfil their potential. Please come along and find out if you think you would like to join the team.
