Westminster Cathedral Choir sings the best music of the last millennium. We’re looking for boys to join our great musical tradition.

If you a know a Year 2 or 3 boy (age 7 or 8) who loves to sing his heart out, enjoys a challenge and wants to be part of a friendly, happy team, we’d love to hear from him.

Becoming a chorister at WCCS is a golden ticket to a world-class musical and academic education at a fraction of its true cost.
