BYC Intermediate Choir

BYC Intermediate Choir was established in 2015. It was clear that, as the Senior Choir developed at a fast pace, the gulf between the two choirs was becoming significant and this was making transition between the choirs challenging for members.

The choir has developed significantly during the last 4 years and sings with skill and precision in a range of genres. Whilst it remains a group that is equipping youngsters for the exciting challenges that face being a member of the Senior Choir it is a strong choir in its own right. In 2018 the Intermediate Choir performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (the biggest arts festival in the world) to critical acclaim. The choir has had numerous opportunities to work with outstanding choral leaders from across the world and benefited from their skill and expertise.

The Intermediate Choir is led by Luke Mather – an outstanding conductor, communicator and singer. He is ably supported by Sarah Lucy Penny and Robert Cooper. The children sing in 3 parts but will also sing in up to 6 parts occasionally (all upper voices). The choir uses Kodaly warm-ups to develop good technique. The uniform for the Intermediate Choir is a burgundy t-shirt for rehearsals and a burgundy dress (girls) and white shirts with a burgundy tie and black waistcoat and black trousers (boys) for concerts.

If you are interested in finding out more information or would like your child to join this choir, please complete & submit the form found on the Join BYC page. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
