Exciting New Opportunity for Young Voices

MON 17 JUN 2019

Young vocalists from across the area are invited to audition to be part of an exciting new initiative from West Sussex Music; the largest provider of high-quality music education to children and young people in the county. West Sussex Young Voices is a brand new choir, led by the Director of the West Sussex Youth Choirs, Sarah Forbes, which will offer talented singers aged 9 to 13 years old access to unrivalled singing tuition and performance opportunities.

West Sussex Young Voices has been designed to give its members the skills they need to become outstanding choral singers, whilst developing good vocal technique, exploring musical expression and enhancing communication and creativity. The new choir will begin in September with a project which will see successful applicants learning movements from Benjamin Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols, in preparation for a public performance at the end of the year. 

 “West Sussex Young Voices will nurture and champion the most talented young singers in this age range; giving them the opportunity to come together to sing at the highest level, while meeting like-minded individuals and having fun.” Explains Director of the West Sussex Youth Choirs, Sarah Forbes. “There is a brilliant repertoire of music available for treble voices and I’m looking forward to helping each and every member of this exciting new choir to fulfil their vocal potential.”

West Sussex Young Voices will meet at The College of Richard Collyer in Horsham on Saturdays during term-time from 11.00 - 12:30pm. Entry is by audition only and West Sussex Music will be holding two free workshop audition sessions on Saturday 6thand 13thof July. Potential candidates are invited to apply online before the 28th June deadline and should be no younger than 9 and no older than 13 in September 2019.
