We are delighted to have launched Byrd Song in the summer of 2021, a new choir in Wakefield offering the opportunity for both boys and girls in Year 2-4 to experience the world of the Cathedral Choir.
We are currently recruiting for choristers to join the choir and Byrd Song is a wonderful chance for your child to find out more about being in the choir, offering a taster of what could be to come in future years.
Each year, we offer opportunities to boys and girls from around Wakefield and the surrounding area to join one of the many choirs we have at the cathedral.
The benefits are endless – educationally, it builds a range of skills and attributes which improve other areas of learning. It improves health and well-being in body and mind. Socially, the choristers learn to work with new-found friends in the choir, building their confidence and gaining many other skills. There is also no fee to join the choir – they even receive modest ‘choir pay’ at the end of each term.
Rehearsals take place every Saturday morning from 09:30-10:30 at the cathedral, with occasional performances at selected services throughout the year.
