BACFAD & Manchester Children’s Choir: How the Cathedral changed our lives!

BACFAD & Manchester Children’s Choir: How the Cathedral changed our lives!

Last academic year we were pleased to welcome four new choristers into our Choir; Angelica, Anika, Mila and Tonye all come from musical backgrounds and share a passion for singing. For Angelica and Mila, their journey to the Choir began with one of the Cathedral’s ‘Be a Chorister for a Day’ events, while Tonye frequently attended our Manchester Children’s Choir on a Saturday morning. Anika’s path to the Choir began when her parents enquired about an audition with Christopher Stokes, Organist and Master of the Choir. We look forward to watching each one of them grow and develop throughout their musical journey here at the Cathedral.
