Welcome to Youth Choirs at St. Luke’s – youth singing in South Battersea.
We’re excited to be starting up again on Tuesday 6th October, and we’re open to new singers!
We’ve missed singing this year at St. Luke’s. However, we’re now in a position to open St. Luke’s to our young musicians for rehearsals, fully compliant with the government guidelines for youth activities and Covid-secure venues. We’re able to restart our two choirs – Junior Choir and the Youth Choir, but with a few changes. You are receiving this email as your child has been a member of one of these choirs in the past. I hope that you will feel able and be excited to join us again this term. We have an exciting plan to create a virtual nativity for the parish in December. I hope that many of you will join us now to enable us to prepare for this project.
Singing on Tuesday Evenings. We plan to start rehearsing in a limited capacity on Tuesdays for both choirs. We will have a maximum of 15 children, spread throughout the spacious building of St. Luke’s. Regular cleaning and hand sanitising points will be available to ensure the safety of all involved. A one way system will be in place – please enter through the entrance on Ramsden Road, and exit through the main church doors. More information about timings are below. Both choirs will restart on Tuesday 6th October.
|Junior Choir are robed choristers who sing at regular Sunday 10:30am services during term time and also at special services throughout the year. Each chorister receives music theory training through RSCM’s Voice for Life Scheme, and we have plans to increase the provision of extra-musical tuition. In addition to receiving a fee for each service, choristers enjoy special events and trips throughout the year. Entrance to the choir is through an informal audition. Ages 8-16.|
Youth Choirs at St. Luke’s are a community choir, with an emphasis on high-quality choral singing in a friendly environment. Singers will develop a secure vocal-technique and learn a variety of music from musical theatre to contemporary choral repertoire. There is no audition. Ages 7-13.
|Spaces are strictly limited to 15. If you would like sign up, please email us (click the following button). We need to know which choir, the name of your child and a contact number. Please do this, even if you have expressed interest in joining us recently. If we are oversubscribed, we will be prioritising existing singers until any restrictions change.|
