The Cathedral Choir

Newcastle Cathedral Choir has a reputation for high standards of music within the liturgy and musical performances that stretches across the region and beyond. It consist of two separate and independent choirs of young singers (trebles). We have a choir of up to 24 Boy Choristers, and a choir of up to 24 Girl Choristers. There is a back row of six professional singers (the Lay Clerks) augmented by Choral Scholars who will usually be students at one of Newcastle’s universities.


There is no official choir school at Newcastle. Boys and girls are recruited from schools across the city and the region. Each group rehearses and sings Choral Evensong after school on a couple of afternoons of the week and takes a turn in the singing of the Sunday services.
