BRADFORD Cathedral staff are visiting district schools to find new members for their choirs – ahead of its annual singing event.

The cathedral will be holding its fifth annual ‘Cathedral Sing’ event on Saturday, February 12, where children from schools are invited along to discover more about the choir.

They have visited Swain House Primary, Blakehill Primary, Wycliffe CE Primary, Hill Top CE Primary, Myrtle Park Primary, Idle CE Primary, Appleton Academy, Beckfoot Priestthorpe and Woodside Academy.

At each school they have run special inclusive singing workshops with school children in different years. These workshops include how to work on singing technique, and they practise singing rounds and how to sing in harmony.

The golden tickets are a special invitation to the ‘Cathedral Sing’ event held at Bradford Cathedral on February 12, between 10am and 12.30pm. Children can come in with their parents to take part in some singing workshops with the music department staff.

The children also get the chance to sign up for the ‘Grace Notes’ choir, who meet every week, as the first step on the journey to becoming a full member of the choir.

If you know any children who would love to be involved in Cathedral Sing, email before Wednesday, February 9.
