Cobham Hall Year 10 student Tilly Green, is one of just 16 members selected for Canterbury Cathedral�s first ever girls� choir, which began rehearsing at the famous cathedral in January.

�The first rehearsal was really good because I got to meet loads of new people. There were a lot of people of different ages and different schools so I got to ask them what their hobbies were and stuff,� said Tilly, admitting that �It was really scary at first�, particularly as the rehearsal was held in the evening when the cathedral was empty.

She says the choir is a step up from her previous experience. �There are a lot of really really experienced people there like David Flood [Canterbury�s Director of Music] and David Newsholme [Director of the Girls� Choir and Assistant Organist].

During rehearsals girls are quizzed on their technical musical knowledge and given technical tips to improve their singing.
At Cobham Hall, Tilly sings in the school�s main choir and chamber choir. She also sings for the Rochester Cathedral Girls� Choir as well as attending the Junior Trinity programme at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London.

Tilly is very excited to be part of Canterbury�s pioneering choir. �It�s one of the most prestigious cathedrals and I love singing,� she says.
