Be A Chorister At Lincoln Cathedral

The Music Department is always on the look out for enthusiastic children to join the choir. We currently have spaces for boys and girls in years 3, 4 and 5. For more information or to organise a formal audition, please contact the Music Department on music@lincolncathedral.com

Lincoln Cathedral Choir consists of up to 20 boy and 20 girl choristers. Choristers can start from the end of year 2 and continue to sing until the end of year 9.

There is no residential choir school: the choristers are drawn from 15 local schools. Weekday rehearsals take place before school and choristers return after school to sing Evensong. Becoming a chorister means joining a musical heritage which stretches back to the Middle Ages.
