Please help us support the Cathedral Choristers and the Cathedral Choir

The St Edmundsbury Cathedral Choir works to the highest standards to provide music for the Cathedral's services. The choristers' commitment averages around 13 hours per week and includes three mornings before school. There is no Cathedral choir school and the boys attend many different schools, some travelling considerable distances each day to attend practice.

The choristers are very dedicated and show tremendous commitment, often at the expense of other interests and in addition to their school activities. The Lay Clerks are all volunteers and sing four or more services each week. The FOCC's primary objective is to raise funds to support activities that augment the choristers' music education and provide special experiences for the choir, such as tours, recordings, concerts and visits.

Membership of the FOCC is open to all and is one way in which members of the Cathedral Community and the public at large can support the choir and the wonderful provision of music that is an integral part of Cathedral life.

  • FOCC's primary focus is fundraising to support the choir and this is achieved through a broad and innovative range of initiatives
