Saturday Singing Club
The group is run by Alice Capper, an ex-chorister at the cathedral and experienced singing teacher with a Grade 8 singing qualification. The Singing Club is extremely privileged to be accompanied by the cathedral’s Assistant Organist Geoff Woollatt, who has a degree in Music Performance and hold the ARCO qualification. They are also assisted by Janet Buckmaster, the choir matron, and a team of volunteer girl choristers.
Children do not need to have any previous music experience, be good singers, or be able to read music to join the group. All that is necessary is a passion for singing!
The group also offers a unique training opportunity for children wishing to join Chester Cathedral Choir. The cathedral's Director and Assistant Director of Music regularly sit in on sessions, as well as hearing the group perform at cathedral services.
If you are interested in your child joining Singing Club, please contact Alice Capper on (01244) 500959 or Geoff Woollatt on (01244) 500956. Service and the Children's Ministry Service.
There are many ways to support the Cathedral from donations through to buying a gift or simply enjoying a coffee in the Refectory. We welcome your support in whatever form it takes.
The Refectory, built in the 13th century, was the dining hall for the 40 monks who belonged to the community at the time. The Refectory is open from 9:30 - 4:30 and a delicious lunch menu, fabulous cakes and free Wi-Fi!
