Barnsley Youth Choir is actually divided in to three choral groups – The Children’s Choir, The Intermediate Choir and The Senior Choir. Each group rehearses and develops their own repertoire as well as preparing pieces as an entire ensemble. By dividing the choir in to these three groups we give our young people a structured pathway of development as their vocal ability improves.
Decisions on which choir a child will join will be based on age, skill level and experience.
New members are required to pass an audition in order to join the choir, a process that ensures we maintain the high standards we have already set and become known for. However, we pride ourselves on inclusion and aim to make the choir accessible to all young people in Barnsley, regardless of background or personal circumstances.
The children pay a nominal subscription of just £2 per week, but we are always happy to address the individual needs of each child on a case-by-case basis.
