Print Friendly Page 
Patrick Aspbury From Chelmsford, Patrick Aspbury, 12, was discovered singing in the choir at Ely Cathedral under the direction of Paul Trepte.

Having started his singing career as a chorister at Chelmsford Cathedral, Patrick moved to Ely Cathedral aged ten. In the summer of 2005 he was invited to join 'the world's first choir boy band', The Choirboys, whose album became the fastest selling classical recording in history. On top of the international attention, Patrick remained at Ely to be promoted to Deputy Head Chorister in his final year.

Now at The King's Senior School, Patrick is no longer in the Cathedral Choir but still sings in various ex-chorister groups and bands.

Update: Patrick Aspbury was tragically killed on April 12, 2017 when he was struck and killed by a train at the Chelmsford station near his home. At the time, he was being treated at the Linden Center, a mental health facility. After a police inquest, it appears that Patrick may have taken his own life.
