The Senior Choir is an Upper Voice Choir for boys and girls from 11 to 18 and is the main performing choir. The pace of Senior Choir is fast, reflecting the large quantity and the different types of events the Choir is involved with. This means that the children in the Senior Choir grow to be very effective musicians, able to turn their hand to a wide range of repertoire, some written especially for them.
Children from the Choir have been involved in concerts at many of the major venues in the UK and abroad, performing with some of the top orchestras. Much of the choir’s work has been recorded. Each year the choir undertakes a variety of classical concerts, and corporate and charity events, giving the children a wide range of different performance opportunities.
The Choir has also recorded for film, television and commercials. Television work includes Children in Need (2012) and Strictly Come Dancing (2013). The choir also appears on several film sound tracks, most recently the Disney film of Cinderella (2015). It toured with Lou Reed for a month in 2007 and 2008, and with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds in 2013 (UK and Europe).
In recent years the choir has appeared at the Aldeburgh Festival (2013), worked with the RPO (Carmina Burana at the Royal Festival Hall) and the BBC Proms (2017). To see a list of highlights from our performing calendar of recent years click the link below.
Entry to the Senior Choir is by audition with Ronald Corp and children will ideally already be able to read music.
