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.

“They were committed and professional throughout the whole day and sang beautifully in the cathedral for the final service.”
