Buckfast Abbey Seeks Senior Choristers to Expand Children’s Choir

Since its foundation in September 2018, our choir of talented choristers has become a group bound together by a love of singing and the pursuit of musical excellence. Initially open exclusively to children attending a local Catholic Primary School, the choir is now poised to embark on an exciting new phase by introducing a dedicated group of Senior Choristers. This expansion aims to provide students in school years 7-9 with the chance to participate in weekly performances within breathtaking settings.

“Music has the power to transform lives, so we are thrilled to offer this unique opportunity to young musicians. Through the establishment of a stream of Senior Choristers, we aim to nurture their talents, foster personal growth, and create unforgettable musical experiences. We look forward to welcoming students with a passion for singing who are seeking an exciting challenge.” says Robert Pecksmith, Assistant Master of the Music at Buckfast Abbey.

Participants will benefit from a generous scholarship, which covers individual vocal and piano lessons, and entry for graded exams, enabling a broad musical education.

If your child is currently in Years 6 or 7 and would be interested in this opportunity, please get in touch. We invite any prospective candidate who possesses a passion for music and a desire to perform at a high level.
