The Choirs

There are three choirs at St Michael’s. Our choirs sing at the 9.30am services and evening Choral Communion and Choral Evensong. We regularly organise tours and cathedral visits.

The Probationer Choir

The Probationer Choir is the children’s choir of St Michael’s, Highgate. Rehearsing once a
week and singing at Sunday Eucharist once a month, it is an excellent opportunity for
children aged 7 to 10 to learn to sing and have fun in a supportive and relaxed environment.
Children in the Probationer Choir benefit from a free musical education which incorporates
singing and music theory. They also learn to develop useful life skills such as confidence,
organisation, and teamwork, all whilst enjoying and engaging with their time in the choir. Fun
trips throughout the year are also organised for the Probationers. At around the age of 10,
Probationers are encouraged to continue their singing by joining the main Parish Choir.
Rehearsals are held at St Michael’s every Friday during term-time, 6.15pm-6.50pm, and the
Probationers lead the singing at the 9.30am Sunday service once a month. For any and all
queries, please get in touch with the Assistant Director of Music, Ben Mills

The Parish Choir

The Parish Choir consists of children from age 10 and adults. They rehearse each Friday from 7pm – 8.30pm and sing at the 9.30am services, evening Choral Communion and Choral Evensong services each month, and at the major festivals.

The St Michael’s Singers

The St Michael’s Singers was formed by the current Director of Music, Paul Dean, in 2010 and is made up of high-calibre amateur and professional singers who wish to sing together but are unable to commit to a regular weekly rehearsal. In addition to their own engagements they join the Parish Choir each month for Choral Communion and Choral Evensong and at other special services from time to time.

Sing with us!

We are always keen to hear from singers who would be interested in joining any of our choirs. If you would like to find out more, please get in touch with our Director of Music, Paul Dean. paul.dean@stmichaelshighgate.org.
