Charles Bainbridge Estate Agents have strong links with the Canterbury community and especially with the Choristers of Canterbury Cathedral.
From every sale we make a donation to The Canterbury Cathedral Choir Bursary Fund and we also organise specific fund raising events. The Bursary Fund helps to ensure that talented boys who are chosen to join the choir are supported if and when the need arises.
“The Choristers of Canterbury Cathedral sing at Services six days a week, continuing a 1400 year old tradition and making it one of the longest-established musical foundations in the world.”
The boys join the Cathedral choir at 8 years old and continue until the summer when they are 13.
Dr Flood, organist and Master of the Choristers, is always delighted to meet parents and their sons to explain the unique experience of a Choristership and to discover and develop exciting new talent. Formal voice trials are held each year in November.
The choir is involved in all the very special events which take place in the Cathedral and makes recordings, broadcasts and concert appearances on a regular basis. They are greatly in demand for overseas travel, especially as we are pleased to welcome so many pilgrims, visitors and guests from around the world. A Choristership in Canterbury Cathedral is a wonderful adventure and a life-enhancing experience.
