Become a Trustee of Cathedral Music Trust

27 May 2022


We are seeking to appoint two Trustees to join the Board and help drive our mission and strategy into the next decade: a Trustee to take on the role of Chair of our Development Committee, and to work with the Development Director and Committee to plan and execute the charity’s donor engagement, stewardship and fundraising strategy; and a Trustee to oversee and lead on governance, and to fulfil the role of Hon. Secretary, a role vital to ensuring the charity meets its legal responsibilities and is managed effectively and efficiently.

Cathedral Music Trust is a charity which supports and promotes sacred choral music, upholding this integral part of the nation’s cultural heritage by campaigning on behalf of cathedral music and musicians, giving grants to cathedral choirs and choristers in need, and encouraging the pursuit of excellence in choral and organ music. It is especially committed to enabling children from a diverse range of backgrounds to experience the many benefits that come from being a chorister.

The Trust has ambitious plans to widen the scope of its activities as the leading source of support for cathedral music through advocacy, education and grant‐giving. Its operations are carried out by a hard working professional staff team who report to a Board of committed and enthusiastic trustees. In 2021 and 2022 it disbursed nearly £1 million in grants to Anglican and Roman Catholic cathedral, church and collegiate chapel choirs in the UK and Republic of Ireland. With Harry Christophers CBE, founder and conductor of The Sixteen, as the Trust’s President, and Alexander Armstrong, television presenter and former chorister, as its Ambassador, the Trust seeks innovative and sector-leading ways to support high-quality musicianship in cathedrals.

We welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates regardless of their background.
