Chorister Taster Afternoon

On Saturday 8th September, 24 boys aged 8 to 10 years, from 15 different local schools enjoyed the first ever chorister taster afternoon at HM Chapel Royal, Hampton Court Palace. A performance of “The Call of Wisdom” by Will Todd was followed by a delicious afternoon tea with the choristers. Mikolaj Derdun aged 9 from Hampton Junior School said “It was really fun and everyone was really kind”. Luke Sitararam aged 9 from Holy Trinity School, Richmond said “It was great! Other boys should definitely do this if they get the chance”. All the boys who participate received a special certificate signed by Carl Jackson MVO and have been invited to attend a formal audition. The Head of Music at St James’s RC School, Twickenham who sent three candidates along reported “The boys did mention that there was some singing involved but the tea seemed to be the high point. It loomed largest and fondest in their memories of the afternoon”
