Junior Choir Chaperone

Chaperones look after the children’s safety around the building and assist our artistic team to support children who benefit from a little extra help during rehearsals. The role is a non-musical one as rehearsals are led by our choir leaders. There is no need for applicants to have experience of singing or music-making, but they should be able to demonstrate enthusiasm and encouragement to the children. Chaperones are needed from 3.40pm to 5.50pm on Monday afternoons during choir terms.
