Norwich Cathedral Choir is part of the Choir Schools' Association (CSA) which is celebrating their centenary year. CSA is a public voice for, and promotes the benefits of, choristership. It supports members and provides professional development and supports chorister recruitment and administers bursary funding.
It has been said that choristers are likely to be rigorously accurate in detail, team players, good at operating in the public eye, quick learners, aware of the need to plan and prepare things and are hard-working.
