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.
Due to the continuing Covid 19 situation we have decided our rehearsal schedule for Spring 2021 will remain online. We have set the dates for both Spring & Summer for the choir and are hopeful that we may be able to meet in person in August 2021 for a 3 day course. We have been asked to take part in some exciting online projects including Somerset Day and the Somerset Music Singing Festivals.
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'
