Alexander Armstrong meets Truro Cathedral Choristers
25 June 2021
Cathedral Music Trust’s ambassador Alexander Armstrong met with young singers from Truro Cathedral earlier this month to discuss the Sing2G7 project, as well their chorister experience and future plans.
During a Zoom call beamed straight into the cathedral, Alexander Armstrong met five choristers, all of whom are in the final weeks their choristership: 13-year old Miles and Jacob and 18-year old Talulla, Gracie and Lucy, as well as Director of Music Chris Gray who took on the role of cameraman for the occasion.
At the time of the call, preparations were being made in the cathedral for Sing2G7’s ‘Mega Zoom’, which saw thousands of children across 14 time zones come together to perform the song ‘Gee Seven’. The song was created by Tim Rice and Peter Hobbs, in a bid to put children’s voices at the heart of the G7 summit, which took place in Cornwall 11-13 June.
