A new season of singing is upon us!

At the end of a fantastic year topped off with brilliant 30th anniversary celebrations, a new season of singing is upon us!

We saw the last season out in style with a wonderful send-off for our long-standing (literally!) Musical Director, Susan Wilkinson. Susan was involved with the choirs since their inception, and worked hard across many years to nurture young people’s voices and give them the confidence and skills to perform to a very high standard. Many choir members spanning the full 30 years convened at our anniversary concert on July 9th at Huddersfield’s Holy Trinity Church to showcase the skills, dedication and love for music and singing that began as a result of their involvement with the choirs. The concert was a triumph and served as a true illustration of Susan’s legacy. We cannot thank her enough for her hard work and dedication from her first day with the choirs to her last.

In recent months, the Huddersfield Choral Youth Choirs have undergone something of a transformation, with a new name, logo and a swanky new website!

Over our 30-year history, the choirs have sung in different sections and been known by several different names. Until 2006 the Youth Choir and Children’s Choir (as the Young Voices were then known) functioned for the most part as separate choirs, coming together to perform special concerts as well as with senior choir, the Huddersfield Choral Society. In 2006 the choirs came together to rehearse on the same evening and in the same venue, headed by Musical Director Susan Wilkinson, and were known as the Huddersfield Choral Society Junior Choirs. In our 30th year, it seemed only fitting to relaunch the choir brand, and we are proud to go into our 31st year under the new ‘umbrella’ title of the Huddersfield Choral Youth Choirs.
