Welcome to the website of the RCOCA – Rochester Cathedral Old Choristers’ Association.
If you are an Old Chorister of Rochester Cathedral, please keep in touch either via this site or via the RCOCA Facebook Group so that you can keep up to date with information about the annual reunion and other events and communicate with fellow Old Choristers. If you are not an Old Chorister, please feel free to browse the site and find out a little more about us. Full details about membership and associate membership may be found on the Membership page.
Message from the Chairman
The Association’s objective is to establish and maintain links between old choristers and encourage our members to continue to participate in the life of the choir and cathedral via the events that are organised throughout each year.
We are always glad to hear from members with whom we have lost touch. Despite its title and existence from 1909, membership is not restricted to the ‘old’ and at evensong on the day of our Annual General Meeting, those who have recently left the Boys or Girls Choirs are formally admitted as members. Former choristers of all ages are welcome.
At our annual reunion, members hear the current choir singing Choral Evensong, have the opportunity to attend the Annual General Meeting and then enjoy the annual reunion dinner, making new friends as well as reuniting old ones.
Our shared experience in the Choir is very special as is our Association.
