A welcome to new singers

We are keen to welcome and encourage a new intake of junior singers (aged 7 upwards) from across the City & County of Swansea to share with the success of our

Boys’ Choir and Girl Choristers

who are drawn from among the best singers Swansea has to offer, and who benefit from a free, professional cathedral-style choral training
