A chorister’s life at Temple is busy but fulfilling and very rewarding. The benefits include:

  • a cathedral-style education whilst living at home with his family
  • a musical training second to none (practical and theory tuition)
  • the development of life skills, such as time management, team work, consideration, self-discipline and responsibility
  • becoming part of a team, striving for musical excellence alongside some of the finest adult musicians in London
  • making many friends
  • becoming an heir to a tradition that has its roots in the twelfth century

First Things First
Boys start their time in the choir as pre-probationers and probationers, a period when they learn to be choristers. Each boy is given individual singing and musicianship lessons from our first-class singing teachers and musical staff, and is taught music theory and performance in small groups. After a reasonable period, he will be put on contract and become a full chorister.

Schedule
The choristers rehearse most days after school and come together for services, concerts, broadcasts and recordings. The choir has even toured to Brazil, USA, the Netherlands, Singapore, Australia and Germany.  Treblesome, the Choristers’ first-ever solo recording, is now available. Please click here to order.

Social Events
Choristers enjoy many social occasions – trips, parties and other social events – and make lasting friends.

Scholarship
Once on contract, Choristers receive a generous scholarship that can be used at any school of the parents’ choosing, subject to selection by the chosen school.

Further information

We hope to run a Chorister Experience Day in early 2023, where we can meet prospective choristers. For more information, an informal chat, or to register interest please contact the Music Administrator, Susan Keeling: susan@templechurch.com / 020 7427 5650
