Barnsley Youth Choir is pleased to announce that it will be moving its main central choirs to Barnsley College in September 2019.
Our mission after that was to mobilise all our supporters and inform any Tesco customers we knew to put the blue counters in the Barnsley Youth Choir slot every time they shopped.
We truly believe that the tour to South Africa will be a life-changing experience for our young people.
After our first ever Singathon a few years ago we agreed never, ever, ever to do it again.
We are seeking to take around 64 children and young people on the trip of a lifetime. We have developed close links with some world famous choirs and choir conductors in South Africa and have been invited to visit them and work with them. Whilst this is a huge challenge to organise, and to raise the funds necessary, we are really desperate to make this possible for our young people.
