Rehearsing weekly, choir members receive vocal coaching to reach a high standard of singing, enabling them to perform a varied repertoire of classical pieces, musical theatre and popular songs.
Choir members are given the opportunity to showcase their musical talents in solo performances as part of a regular concert programme, giving them the platform to grow in confidence and hone their skills and stage presence.
Many members of the Youth Choir go on to further develop their singing talents in music schools throughout the country, and use the skills they gain with the choir to win parts with prestigious musical companies, such as Opera North. You can also see many of our past members singing on the stage with the main Huddersfield Choral Society.
The Youth Choir consists of members who have grown and developed their skills through the Young Voices and Vocalise, and also newer members who have joined from local colleges and Huddersfield University.
The Youth Choir brings together a creative group of like-minded young people who all share a desire to inspire each other and make music! Why not come along and join in?
New Youth Choirs members can join at any time (we run in line with the Kirklees academic year from September to July).
Youth Choir rehearsals are held each Wednesday from 7.00pm until 9.00pm at:
Lindley Methodist Church
45 East Street

I feel that the choir gave me a musical boost and also trained me very well to sing 'safe ' which is very important for a long and happy singing career. The choir is also a very good social experience – sharing the love of music with others your age. Music is food for the soul, and singing with others should be cherished and celebrated.
The social aspect of the choir is key; when you connect with the people around you on a social level, it's much easier to connect musically too. At first I was very nervous about doing solos, but hearing all the lovely comments after really gave me the confidence to do more and now I can stand up and do a solo with confidence. I enjoy pushing myself and this is a great way for me to do it.
I love the social element of being in the choirs as you need to feel comfortable around your peers and learn together in a supportive environment. Singing is a joyful experience and you should share this with your friends.
Our daughter has definitely developed as a singer and sight reader and her understanding and skill is evident when she sings and discusses music and songs
