Choristers

Four young choristers

Choristers at King's College have an unbeatable start to life. The chorister experience is probably the best musical education available to boys between the ages of 8 and 13; it also offers the benefits of skills that will last a lifetime.

Performing to a highly professional standard, choristers gain a natural self-confidence, as well as the appreciation of good time-keeping and the rewards that result from hard work and disciplined study, combined with a well-rounded social experience.

King's makes every effort to make choristerships possible for any boy with the right musical ability.
