CHORISTERS from an award-winning Southsea school choir have returned from a successful tour of Liverpool’s cathedrals.

The youngsters in St John’s Chapel Choir, from St John’s College, sang to huge audiences during the tour.

It saw them perform at several holy venues including the Roman Catholic Metropolitan Cathedral and the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, which is the largest in Britain.

Head of music at St John’s College Keith Ellison said: ‘The choir received so many wonderful comments about their discipline and their singing during this tour.

‘The boys work very hard and deserve all the accolades that come their way.’

He added: ‘As a Portsmouth school, we are very proud that these choristers are representing our city in so many places across the country.’

The boys are now practising for their next tour to France.

During that trip they will perform at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.
