THE CATHEDRAL HAS A BUSY MUSIC OUTREACH PROGRAMME.

Every term during the academic year the Cathedral Choristers work with up to eight schools to perform to and sing with a complete year group. After the visit, the Music Outreach Team, continues to work with the participating schools helping prepare the children for a concert at the Cathedral.

The Team also works with the teachers, as they develop their own choral leadership skills. The teachers from each participating school also perform at the concert which is always warmly received by their pupils.

The concerts at the Cathedral are lively musical occasions providing the audience of parents and family members with a day to remember. Anyone can sing, and the benefits of singing can be life changing. It is good aerobic exercise and helps develop cognitive learning skills. Participating in music making can boost confidence and encourage positive social skills.
