St. Margaret's Church at Westminster Abbey Launches New All-Girl Choir for Ages 13-16: Join a Historic Choral Tradition in the Heart of the Capital
March 19, 2023

The church, in the grounds of Westminster Abbey, is forming a new all-girl choir for ages thirteen to sixteen. Singing duties will comprise regular services in the Abbey itself St Margaret’s Church, in the grounds of Westminster Abbey and a portion of the palace of Westminster Abbey and Westminster Abbey complex, is forming a new choir that'll welcome girls aged thirteen to sixteen.

St Margaret's Choristers is a new choir that offers 'an exciting and historic opportunity for talented girls to sing in an unique setting at the heart of the capital, joining in a wealthy and ancient choral tradition'. Applications are presently open for girls who'd love to connect the choir and will be in Years 8-eleven in September two thousand twenty-three. All girls will leave at the finish of Year twelve, so those entering in Year 11 will appreciate two years as the choir’s first senior year group. The choir is also seeking four girls who'll be in Year seven in September two thousand twenty-three. This cohort will spend a year as probationer choristers before joining the full choir in September two thousand twenty-four. 'We are looking for girls with powerful musical potential and commitment to the weekly schedule, not fully-fledged performers, and we welcome applications girls any school or background,' the church tells us.

The choir will sing in duration time at the Sun evening service at St Margaret’s Church, as well as some Wednesday Evensong services in Westminster Abbey. There will be a tiny no of extra services such as at Christmas and Easter. The Choristers will regularly have the chance to sing with the professional altos, tenors and basses of the St Margaret’s Consort and will be directed by Greg Morris, the Director of Music at St Margaret’s Church. Singing lessons (1:2) will be provided during rehearsals, and choristers will have the opportunity to attend music theory classes after weekday rehearsals. The choir’s service commitment on Wednesdays may evolve further over time, while other musical projects such as concerts, recordings and tours will be introduced as the choir develops.
