The Somerset County Youth Choir was reformed in September 2014 and is open to young people aged 11 – 21. The choir meet throughout each term and perform regularly throughout the year at small and large scale events across the county. There is no audition to join the choir, just an enthusiasm to learn and a love of singing! Being a member of the choir gives you the opportunity to widen your singing experiences and challenge your musical creativity. You will have the chance to sing a broad range of repertoire and work with vocal experts.
We hope you enjoy watching this latest Somerset County Youth Choir performance of 'Just Sing' which was commissioned for the Somerset Music Singing Festival. We had great fun filming this at various locations in Somerset and I hope you agree that the end result is fantastic! Please share the video far and wide using the link below!
'Just Sing' performed by the Somerset County Youth Choirs
The main choir is split into three choirs:
Training Choir (Age 8 – 12 years)
Senior Girls (Age 12 -21)
Lads of the Levels (Age 12 -21)
We also have a Show Choir (entry by audition) which was formed in August 2015 and runs independently from the County Youth Choir providing an opportunity for performers who wish to combine choral, close harmony singing with dance. To see the latest project 'Grown Up Christmas List' please click on the link below. Despite being mainly restricted to working on Zoom, we were able to record their voices individually and then filmed their socially distanced choreography Show Choir 'Grown Up Christmas List'
