Our Choir Structure

Barnsley Youth Choir is made up of sub-choirs, which together form BYC as a whole. This ensures the children develop their skills in the correct environment, and provide them with a pathway through to the Senior Choir.

We have one choir for juniors, three location based choirs, and our three stage choirs based on your age & experience.
