Workshops for Choirs

We have a number of highly experienced leaders involved who offer training events throughout the year for choir leaders and school teachers.

BYC is also blessed to work with some outstanding international conductors who visit Barnsley and offer training opportunities.

Previous visits have included workshops by Dr. Michael Barrett (South Africa) on Choral Leadership and the Pillars of Choral Singing, Laszlo Duranyik (Hungary) on the Kodaly System and Tony Margeta (Sweden) on Sound Production. We have worked with Dr. Amy Bebbington (Director of Training for the Association of British Choral Directors) and other UK based leaders too. We are committed to supporting the development of choirs and choral singing beyond Barnsley Youth Choir and will continue to facilitate and provide opportunities for other choral leaders and musicians to access high quality training.

We may also be able to facilitate opportunities to watch Barnsley Youth Choir in rehearsals or work with specific international leaders. We will continue to post opportunities in this area.
