Be a Chorister for a Day 2012

     
 

On Sunday 13 May we welcomed children from all over Northampton to the second annual Be a Chorister for a Day event at St Matthew’s. The day is intended to provide children and their families with an idea of what being in a church choir is all about and provide a hands-on experience to find out!

Over the course of the day participants learned, rehearsed and performed music with the choir, had a chance to try on some robes and had a great deal of fun.

The two sides of the choir, Decani and Cantoris, were

pitted against one another in a highly competitive game of rounders on the church green before relaxing with a drink.

Many parents and supporters attended Evensong, with the augmented choir giving an excellent account of themselves in performances of music by Stanford and Wesley. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves and some have now joined the choir on a permanent basis.

There will be another Be a Chorister for a Day event in 2013, but the Director of Music is always pleased to hear of potential recruits to the choir. Details what the choir does and of how to join can be found here.

Please find below a selection of photos.
