Merton College Girl Choristers

In 2016 Merton College became the first College in Oxford University to admit girls into its Choral Foundation. The twenty-four girl choristers attend many different schools across Oxford and beyond, and rehearse at Merton on a Monday and Wednesday during school terms. Receiving specialist musical training from the College’s professional musicians, they sing Choral Evensong each Wednesday during University term, often with six professional adult singers who sing the lower parts. In addition, the choir undertakes a number of concerts and other activities each year, including performing in the Passiontide at Merton festival.
