SAYS emphasises learning music in a fast-paced and fun environment. All our young people learn basis singing technique in a really enjoyable and supportive atmosphere. Children are encouraged to take a role in leading parts from an early age and learn to lead groups, which grows confidence and autonomy as part of the process. Our highly successful St Albans Young Singers has recently split into juniors and seniors.

One of the most exceptional things about this choir is that we usually rehearse in the millennium-old nave of the Cathedral. This is an exceptional experience for our young people, and provides a unique encounter for them with the Cathedral – where they are encouraged to enjoy everything that the acoustic has to offer!

Although the choir is not one of the Cathedral’s liturgical choirs, we sing at church services around six times a year, and also at other events.

Juniors: Monday 4.45pm-5.15pm (term time); Seniors: Monday (5.15pm-6pm).
