NewYVC and beyond

NewYVC returns to Stratford Circus this month, for another thirty-six week run of rehearsals, clustered schools workshops and performances, including the Brandenburg Festival, the WHY? Festival at Southbank and their very own event at the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank. To make enquiries about choir and how to join, contact, or Jane Wheeler.

The choir ended the summer term with a fantastic two night event at Stratford Circus, in which they were the host choir to the sixteen schools taking part in the UNITE massed choir, funded by Youth Music over two years.  Nelson Primary, St.Bonaventure’s, Sarah Bonnell and Lister schools also contributed their own solo performances, helping to make the event a great success, in which songs in eight different languages were sung!

This year the Young Artists who’ve supported the project so far are promoted to Associate Artists, in recognition of their growing professional status. We will be recruiting four Young Artists under twenty-five to continue the great work already achieved and look forward to seeing the Associate Artists at rehearsals, school workshops and all the events on this rich and diverse singing programme.
