The Cathedral Choral Foundation

The Cathedral Choral Foundation

At the heart of St John’s College is the Cathedral Choral Foundation.

As the choir school to Cardiff Metropolitan Cathedral, St John’s College provides the boy and girl choristers (ages 8-18) for weekly Sunday masses, also participating in an annual Christmas Concert at St David’s Hall and numerous performance opportunities throughout the year.

Over the years the Cathedral Choir has appeared in a major Hollywood film, participated in radio broadcasts for BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Four, performed with the world-renowned consort The Tallis Scholars, sung at Nôtre Dame, Paris and performed alongside the Prague and Cardiff Philharmonic Orchestras in performances of Mahler’s Third Symphony.

In addition, the choir has also given performances in Madrid, El Escorial, the cathedrals of Bruges and Ghent, St David’s Hall, Christ Church Cathedral Oxford, Brecon Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
