Gloucestershire County Youth Choir – Representation From All Secondary Schools in 2022/23
To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Gloucestershire County Youth Choir we’d like you to help us reach our target of making this a truly county-wide ensemble by having representatives from every Secondary School in the County. Please nominate asap.
This choir is for anyone aged 11-18 and normally comes through nominations from Heads of Music, Singing Teachers or Community Music Leaders. All Heads of Music have had the information emailed to them for this over the last couple of months with nomination letters ready for them to give out. The choir is for those who have shown passion for singing (any style) and is a reward for their commitment through maybe individual singing efforts or dedication to singing ensembles / activities in their school or community. The choir meets three times a year (weekend course) and will be performing at Pittville Pump Rooms, Tewkesbury Abbey and Stroud Subscription Rooms…with maybe a performance at Birmingham Symphony Hall if they get through to the Music For Youth Nationals! For more information about the themes for the courses, the professional team and guest artists please see: Gloucestershire Youth Choir (GYC) - Gloucestershire music First course is 5th/6th November 2022. 100% bursaries available for those facing financial barriers.
