BYC Junior Choir West (Penistone)

BYC Junior Choir West (Penistone)

BYC Junior Choir West was piloted in April 2023 in response to a growing demand for opportunities for this age group in this area. The choir is very much focused on enjoyment and the use of Kodaly games and movement to accompany singing.

This choir follows in the footsteps of BYC Junior Choir Central, based in the town centre. Since its inception it has proved to be very popular and regularly has over 50 children attending rehearsals. They are incredibly enthusiastic and the joy of singing together is clear to see in rehearsals and performances. The central choir made its debut in June 2018 at a concert featuring the National Youth Choir of Great Britain Fellowship. The children sang brilliantly in front of a sell-out audience of 400 people and sang alongside our professional band. A number of these members have already graduated into our Children’s and Intermediate Choirs which is really pleasing.

The choir is led by Eleanor Wright – a real expert in working with young voices. She is ably supported by an assistant and an accompanist. The children will sing in unison but will also sing in 2 parts and use special Kodaly warm-ups to develop technique. The choir members wear light green t-shirts for rehearsals and concerts (provided free of charge).

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.
