Boy trebles have sung in New College Chapel since the college’s foundation in 1379. The choir recruits boys aged between 7 and 13 from the local area, who attend New College School - a day school near the college. As full members of the choir they sing services in chapel and perform in concerts and tours at home and abroad, as well as making recordings. They enjoy substantial bursaries at New College School, and the musical education they receive lasts a lifetime, almost invariably leading to music awards at their secondary schools.
Parents interested in choristerships are encouraged to contact the director, Robert Quinney. We will also be holding our popular open day on the 13th June for families with boys who love singing and would consider a Choristership. We will not be able to welcome you all to chapel this year, but there will be plenty of material on the choir’s website, including features, video clips and an interview with Robert . Please follow updates on the website and join the choir staff virtually on the day when there will be opportunities to join Q&A discussion with the director.
Please register your interest here so that we can keep you updated with all information. Please return completed forms to firstname.lastname@example.org. Auditions are held each January for boys in school Year 2 (aged between six and seven), for entry as probationers in Year 3.
