A chorister’s life at Temple is busy but fulfilling and very rewarding. The benefits include:
First Things First
Boys start their time in the choir as pre-probationers and probationers (starting usually in school Year 3), 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.
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.
Choristers enjoy many social occasions – trips, parties and other social events – and make lasting friends.
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.
We hope to run a Chorister Experience Day in early 2023, where we can meet prospective choristers of Year 2 age (for starting in Year 3 / Sept 2023). For more information, an informal chat, or to register interest please contact the Music Administrator, Susan Keeling: email@example.com / 020 7427 5650
