The Junior Choir of All Saints’, in its current format under the tuition of Rebecca Bell, Choir mistress, was formed in September 2001 with just five choristers! They were: Sophia and Jamie Bell, Melissa de Haan, Kerri Hayes and Felicity Cunningham. Jamie, Melissa and Felicity all went on to be Head Chorister and two of their siblings sing in the choir today.
We now have seventeen children in the choir – eleven girls and six boys. The youngsters attend three services a month preceded by choir practice and also choir practice on Thursdays at the Grove, Peppard.
Junior choristers follow the RSCM Voice for Life training scheme and also train individually for the RSCM Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. They get the opportunity to attend choir courses and festivals at some of the most prestigious churches and cathedrals in the area. Being a junior cho-rister is lots of fun and gives these youngsters the opportunity to sing together, make new friends and learn about the dis-cipline of being in a church choir.
Come and see us in action at All Saints’ one Sunday!
