A GIRLS choir made history this week when it became the first to perform in Bangor Cathedral in 1,437 years.

The newly formed Bangor Cathedral Girls Choir, made up of pupils aged seven to 17 from six schools in the Bangor district, became the first ever to perform at Evensong worship on Monday.

The Rev Canon Michael Outram, who helped set up the choir, said he was excited about the new group.

“It’s a very exciting development, and something that is long overdue. It not only gives the girls equality, but gives more children in the area a chance to appreciate and experience great music and develop their musical talent.

The 14 strong group, who have also performed at several other events across the Diocese, will also be singing at Bangor Cathedral’s 1,000 Candles Concert on December 12 from 7.30pm, which will feature popular carols and readings to mark the start of advent.
