ELY IMPS
CALLING LOCAL GIRLS AND BOYS AGED 7-13 WHO CAN SING!

ELY CATHEDRAL IS INVITING MORE YOUNG SINGERS (AGED 7-13) TO JOIN THE RANKS OF ITS WELL ESTABLISHED AND HIGHLY REGARDED CHILDREN'S CHOIR, THE ELY IMPS

The Cathedral's children's choir - open to all children, free of charge. Can you hold a tune and enjoy singing? Then come and join us!

The choir appeared in public for the first time in 2006 when over 100 boys and girls aged 7-13 sang to a packed cathedral under the baton of the world-famous Cambridge based composer, John Rutter.

With an emphasis on the fun and joy of singing, the Imps take part in large scale concerts, joining the cathedral's other choirs in the glorious setting of Ely Cathedral. The children also perform in their own concerts and at various venues in the area, for example, King's College Chapel, Cambridge.

The Imps are trained by experienced professional musicians and receive high calibre vocal input. Rehearsals run for one hour a week during term time, usually on a Wednesday evening. If you know a boy or girl in this age group who enjoys singing, do please encourage their parents to get in touch with us as soon as possible. The more the merrier!"

Interested? If so please contact the Administrator, Anne Mizen, gro/lardehtacyle//nezim/a. Tel: 01353 664470 to arrange a time to sing to Rebecca Duckworth who will be pleased to meet children and their parents at any convenient time. Those who inquire will be given an individual time slot to show how well they can sing. It is best to bring a song along, but if that is a problem Rebecca will be happy to devise some singing games instead.There is no need to be scared of an "audition" because the occasion will be a relaxed and enjoyable experience.

Don't be shy! Give it a try!
