When the Abbey Choir is on leave, visiting choirs are welcomed, upholding the Abbey’s pattern of choral services. This is an important aspect of worship at Westminster Abbey and choirs are received both at the invitation of the Minor Canons and Music Department and via online applications.
Your first port of call regarding a visit should be the Visiting Choirs Information Pack.
Applications for the Summer 2020 visiting choir period will open on 1st June 2019. If you would like to be reminded of this and informed of the release of future dates, please contact [email protected] to be added to the mailing list.
We very much look forward to welcoming you here to Westminster Abbey, and value enormously your contribution to the life and work of our community, which represents faith at the heart of our national life.
The biggest challenge we face is actually time – getting all our work done alongside the daily routine of the Abbey as a working church, visitor attraction and home to 1,000 years of history.
