Girl Choristers Summer Concert

On Wednesday 8th June the Girl Choristers performed a spectacular gala concert to an audience of around 170 people inside the cathedral’s generous acoustic quire. The concert was held in aid of the Friends of Winchester who sponsor the Girl Choristers by paying their annual expenses and providing bursaries, which allows each girl to learn a musical instrument.

The evening was described by one attendee as having a ‘fantastic atmosphere in the heart of the cathedral’ with another who was joyous after listening to the ‘sublime singing’.

The Girl Choristers are made up of 20 girls aged 12- 17, all from schools in the Winchester and Hampshire area.
