Carlisle Cantate Childrens Choir

Carlisle Cantate Childrens Choir is the Cathedral’s community choir.  It provides and opportunity for children who have taken part in Singing Out, the Cathedral's Outreach Programme, to continue with the development of their singing.  The choir is open to all children, there is no audition.  The choir sings a variety of music in a fun and relaxed atmosphere and rehearses on Thursday evenings from 6.30 - 7.30pm in the Prior's Tower in the Cathedral grounds.

Recent performances have included a prize-winning performance in the Carlisle and District Music Festival, singing at a local care home, and singing at the Crib Service in the Cathedral on Christmas Eve. The choir also has an annual outing; they visited Energi in 2018, Keswick in 2017 and Fellfoot Park and the Lake's Aquarium in 2016.

The choir is directed by Edward Taylor (the assistant organist). The choir sings a varied repertoire across many genres of music including jazz, classical children’ songs, musicals, popular and folk.
