Young Voices Wanted for Bradford Catholic Youth Choirs!

21st October 2018

Young Voices Wanted for Bradford Catholic Youth Choirs! Young Voices Wanted for Bradford Catholic Youth Choirs!

On October 21st, 2018 the Diocese of Leeds' Schools Singing Programme is holding open auditions for the four choirs of Bradford Catholic Youth Choir.


We are looking for potential - so previous experience and ability to read music is NOT necessary! 


This is also a great opportunity for high school students to fulfil criteria for their 'Faith in Action' Awards!


If your child enjoys singing, sign up for an audition slot by contacting  office@dioceseofleedsmusic.org.uk OR 0113 244 8634


The choirs receive expert vocal tuition, sing a huge range of music and enjoy brilliant opportunities including BBC broadcasts, concerts and are part of Gabrieli Consort & Players ROAR programme for youth choirs. 


In the past year they have broadcast several times on BBC Radio 4, given three concerts and recorded with the internationally-acclaimed Gabrieli Consort - as well as singing for Masses in Bradford, Keighley and Leeds.


There are spaces in all four of the BCYC choirs:

Bradford Junior Choir (School Years 3 to 6; rehearse Wednesdays 4-5 pm)

Keighley Junior Choir (Years 3-6; rehearse Wednesdays 4-5 pm)

Senior Boys' Choir (Year 4 upwards, with a lower voices group; rehearse Thursdays 4-5.30 pm)
