Groups and Activities
The Barnsley Youth Choir was established in February 2009 to serve the children and young people of Barnsley. The choir currently has 200 members aged between 8 and 18 years old and is divided into two smaller choirs – The Children’s Choir and The Youth Choir.
Barnsley Youth Choir is a voluntary organisation and we rely on the hard work and dedication of a large team of skilled volunteers. We are reliant on the kindness and goodwill of patrons who support the organisation, We are also fortunate enough to receive donations from figures within our community that enables the choir to continue and thrive.
The choir has a varied repertoire of music that will include Classical, Pop, Gospel and Folk music. The team of musical directors have ambitious plans for the choir and hope to take part in festivals and competitions both in this country and abroad in the future.
Barnsley Youth Choir is based at the Horizon Community College on Dodworth Road, Barnsley. Rehearsals take place every Thursday evening during school term time between 6pm-7:30pm for the Children’s Choir and 7:30-9pm for the Youth Choir.
