Reasons to join Sale Youth Choirs

If you love singing, are aged between 7 and 18 years old and want to sing in harmony with other like-minded people, no matter what your musical experience then SYC is for you. We have 2 choirs for different age groups. In both choirs you will learn new skills, make new friends, learn to read music, become a more confident singer and have many performance opportunities whilst being coached by Matt, our artistic director, who has trained some of the UK's best young voices including the Halle Youth, Training and Children's choirs as well as Opera North Youth and Children's chorus.

Which SYC Choir to join?

Our choirs are split into 2 separate choirs:

SYC Children's Choir

This choir is for anybody aged between 7 and 11 years old. In this choir you will; develop your singing skills by playing musical games through a Kodaly based approach, learn lots of new songs often singing in 2 or 3 part harmony and have numerous performance opportunities throughout the year to put into practice what you have been learning.

Singing in choirs is lots of fun and you will make many new friends!

Sale Youth Choir

This choir is for anybody aged between 12 and 18 years old. In this choir you will continue your vocal development, learn to read sheet music fluently, improve your musicianship skills through ear training and regular vocal exercises. This choir is an SATB choir which means we frequently sing in 4 part harmony with a range of male and female voices. You will receive training from professional choral practitioners every week aiming towards performance opportunities.

You will be surrounded by like-minded individuals and make lifelong friendships.

How much does it cost?

Come down to your first rehearsal free of charge to see whether SYC is for you!

It costs £5 p/rehearsal to sing with SYC Children's Choir and £6 p/rehearsal to sing with Sale Youth Choir.

This is paid online each term.

A bursary scheme is available for any families who may struggle to meet these costs. It is important to us at SYC that no young person should feel they cannot be involved due to financial circumstances. Please contact us through to discuss further. Any information received will be treated in complete confidence

Safety and wellbeing at SYC

Each SYC choir will take a register at the start and end of each rehearsal and monitor attendance and general well being of members throughout the year.

Safety and wellbeing of all SYC members is a priority and our staff members and volunteers are DBS checked and inducted through our safe guarding policy.

New SYC members are supported through their first few weeks. Many new members join not knowing anybody but quickly make friends within the SYC family.
