Ripon Cathedral is launching a new Winter Prom to showcase its array of musical talent and provide an opportunity for children in the region to get a glimpse of life as a chorister.
The prom includes a free concert of family favourites including music from Disney’s Frozen and dances from the Nutcracker Suite – with live animations and refreshments (including mulled cider) beforehand.
The cathedral choir, organists, youth choir and junior choir will all be performing – together with children invited to come along for ‘the choir experience.’
If you have a child aged six to 11 who likes to sing you can sign up for the event at email@example.com
Not only will children get to sing alongside our cathedral choristers but mums, dads and carers can chat to current choir parents about what life for a chorister and their family is like.
Director of Music Andrew Bryden said: “Our amazing choir has gone from strength to strength. This summer we had a hugely successful tour of Germany and extremely high attendances for our carol services over Christmas – with standing room only at two of them.
“As well as first class musical training choristers enjoy sports days, fun days out, sleepovers and party nights all within a caring and nurturing environment. There are also plenty of social events for parents.”
The Winter Prom runs from 2.30 to 4.30pm at Ripon Cathedral on Saturday January 18.
