Index > Music
Since the first choir was founded, music has filled this fine church of St Mary, Old Swinford. Choral singing is one of Britain’s richest traditions and a vibrant, living heritage which is often the preserve of our great cathedrals. The choir of this church is precious; it transforms and inspires worship and enriches the community of Old Swinford.
The English choral tradition remains central to music at St Mary’s Church.
Join the choir and enjoy an outstanding, free musical education and be trained using the RSCM Voice for Life Scheme.
Could your son or daughter be a chorister?
Choristers come to St Mary's from the local community and attend different schools in Stourbridge. Children do not need any previous experience, just an interest in singing and music and a clear voice with a good musical ear. Children normally join at the age of 8 or above.
