There were smiles all round when girls with a passion for singing got to experience a day in the life of a member of Ely Cathedral Girls’ Choir.
Around 20 girls from across the region - and some from further afield - visited King’s Ely and Ely Cathedral on October 21 for ‘Be A Girl Chorister For A Day’.
The annual event gives girls aged nine to 16 and from all walks of life the chance to see what it is like to be a girl chorister.
The event featured a programme of activities including rehearsals with the current girl choristers and tours of the girls’ boarding house and Choral Evensong at the cathedral.
Director of ECGC, Sarah MacDonald, said: “I was delighted to work with a group of such incredibly enthusiastic and talented girls.
