Bradford Cathedral fills with music at Cathedral Sing event

Bradford Cathedral recently welcomed 150 local primary school children to their annual ‘Cathedral Sing!’ event, for a morning filled with workshops, performances and a final service in front of parents and guardians. 
The event, which followed a tour of primary schools in the Bradford District as part of the ‘Golden Ticket’ scheme, was a huge success with over 80 signing up to the Saturday Singers.
Parents and guardians gathered to watch the Saturday Singers, Cathedral Choir and the new recruits sing.
Graham Thorpe, Assistant Director of Music at Bradford Cathedral said: “We were absolutely delighted with the success of Cathedral Sing! 
“The participants loved the day, when they were able to learn some new songs, meet other children from across Bradford and sing to their parents at the end. 
“Their parents were given talks and tours of the cathedral giving them a glimpse of the day to day running of the musical life at the cathedral!
“It's thrilling that we now have over 80 new sign--ups for the Saturday Singers, our community choir for children.
“Next half term the Saturday Singers will learn a new song which they will be able to use as an audition piece for the Cathedral Choir. 
“Auditions will be open to children across Bradford.
“We are all thoroughly looking forward to the next steps in our outreach and recruitment programme!”
