The Choir & Singing | King's College School
The Choristers will sing Come, Let Us Gather by Richard Van Oss. They have enjoyed singing this song since we began meeting in September. It is a simple. Ensembles meet in small sections at different locations and times in to be considered for the advanced levels: Choristers, Concert Choir, and. As you know, the Mimico Children's Choir is looking for more members from our parent body to sit on our board of directors. As a Board member, you would meet .

The Organ Scholars also assist with morning chorister practices, as well as with training of the choristers and probationers. The Choristers perform alongside the Choral Scholars. They are appointed on the basis of both their academic and vocal performance.
There is often the opportunity for the Choristers to engage with the Organ and Choral Scholars, some of whom were choristers themselves.

The experience of boarding has changed our relationship in so many ways. Contrary to what people will tell you, your son will not feel abandoned, he will gain independence and learn to work as a team. You will not have to nag him about prep, instrumental practice and too much time in front of the TV as the boarding house team will teach him the skills he requires to get these things done on time.

I know that finally, when our amazing chorister journey comes to an end, my son will have acquired a set of skills that will prepare him for whatever challenges life throws at him. Looking back on the chorister experience Louise Landman former Chorister parent To have a child that is selected to be a chorister at Kings College Cambridge would be for most parents beyond their wildest dreams.
If your son displays an interest and enjoyment of music and singing in particular he will lose nothing from having a go. Have a go, have no expectations, be relaxed and put no pressure on the child.
The auditions last for a couple of hours during which time the choir-master and the singing teacher have chance to listen to the boy singing his piece and taking part in a few simple tests. There are also a few short reading, writing and maths tests.
The auditions are conducted in a fun and friendly manner; the boys have a thoroughly enjoyable morning, though it can be nail-biting for the parents! Being a chorister is certainly hard work, both for the boys and their families, but you quickly realize that it is all a well-trodden path and that your boys are in the hands of experts. Kings College School and its staff are fantastic: The boys even become organised themselves!
Parents and siblings feel welcome and are included in every step of the way.
I cannot recommend the life highly enough. The two of us sat in silence listening to the Nine Lessons and Carols.

It was on the front cover of Radio Times. Christ was coming into the world in Cambridge, because there were angels singing and glory echoing from afar. The whole thing was from another world.
