Date Posted: Fri, 8 Sep 2023
There are still places available to audition for our 24-voice Youth Chamber Choir for 2023/24! Singers should be aged 15-20 of any gender or voice type (though we're particularly keen to meet some tenors and basses), excited about developing their singing technique and musicianship through exceptional choral musical education. Singers will learn a huge range of fantastic new and classical choral music to perform in concerts and events through the season, led by Youth Choirs Artistic Director Lynsey Callaghan.
