 West Sussex Young Voices

West Sussex Young Voices is a choir for the most talented young singers across the county in Years 5 to 8. Led by Musical Director Sarah Forbes, the choir focuses on the best of SSA repertoire to nurture and champion young sopranos, altos and unbroken boys voices.

Launched in September 2019, West Sussex Young Voices rehearses Saturdays 11-12.30pm at The College of Richard Collyer, Horsham.

We are looking for the best young voices in the county, regardless of experience.

West Sussex Youth Choir

West Sussex Youth Choir offers talented singers from 13 to 18 years old access to singing tuition and performance opportunities which are designed to give them the skills they need to become outstanding choral singers, whilst also developing good vocal technique, exploring musical expression and enhancing communication and creativity.

Entry into West Sussex Youth Choir is by audition. Come along to a FREE trial session followed by an informal listening session with Sarah. Singers should be around Grade 5 standard but it is not necessary to have taken the exam. Some ability to read music is an advantage but more important is a passion for singing, a commitment to the group and a willingness to learn from those around you.
