We run three youth choirs under the umbrella organisation of leading Highbury-based chamber choir Eclectic Voices : Highbury Young Singers, Highbury Junior Choir and Highbury Youth Choir. The subscription rate is £50 per term; sibling discounts and bursaries are available.
Highbury Young Singers and Highbury Junior Choir are our junior choirs for children aged 6 to 11 (Years 1-6). We aim to nurture a love of singing and music-making - alongside providing exceptional opportunities to work with professional musicians in stunning venues. The choirs have performed in some of London's most prestigious venues including the Queen Elizabeth Hall, and have collaborated on several recordings and TV broadcasts. Our youngest singers start in Highbury Young Singers and usually move into the Junior Choir in Year 4, when part-singing and more complex musicianship is introduced.
HYS and HJC rehearse on Thursdays 4.00 - 5.00pm in term-time at Christ Church, Highbury.
Highbury Youth Choir is our senior choir for young people aged 11-18 (school years 6-13). We explore a wide range of genres and styles and collaborate with other youth choirs from across London, as well as regular concerts with Eclectic Voices.
Entry to the choir is by a simple audition - we are looking for a good 'ear' and some music-reading skills. For more information contact us.
Highbury Youth Choir rehearses during term time on Thursdays 5.15 - 6.30pm at Christ Church, Highbury.
