Training Choir: For Children
aged 8-11

The DCYS Training Choir focuses on developing the ability to sing in parts (using rounds and canons as a starting point) and building on their knowledge of rhythm and pitch. Whilst we are a traditional choir, learning songs for concerts and performances, we play singing and rhythm games to enhance musical understanding.

The Training Choir will often work with the Chamber Choir to sing more challenging repertoire, and performs regularly in Durham Cathedral. The Choir also takes part in youth operas and external events such as the National Festival of Music for Youth.
The Chorister School Saturday   11.00 a.m. - 1.00 p.m.
During term time, all DCYS choirs rehearse at The Chorister School – Durham Cathedral’s Choir School.
