Junior Choir is an activity at St Nicholas’ Church for young people (boys and girls) aged 7 – 15 years. Started in autumn 2010, the choir has already achieved high standards with some of our choristers also singing in other choirs or singing groups within the Oxford area or beyond.
We practise every week on Friday evenings from 6.00pm until 6.45pm. All choristers sing at one service a month: usually the Parish Communion on the third Sunday at 10.00am plus some extra services to mark special celebrations. The more experienced choristers (those who have achieved their Light Blue medals) also sing at the Evensong service on fourth Sundays at 6.00pm.
The choristers sing alongside the main adult choir but usually sing an anthem on their own at Parish Communion. At Evensong, the choristers sing a full SATB anthem along with the adults as well as the hymns, canticles and responses. We sing all sorts of music from the earliest choral music right through to modern worship songs and choruses.
