Want to start something amazing?

If you're a talented young singer with the ability and potential to take your passion to the highest level, and you're inspired by the idea of singing great music in incredible places with friends who love singing as much as you do, then you've come to the right place.

Assessment by individual audition can seem daunting, so we always aim to make the process friendly and helpful. Here's how it works:

1. Sign up
We typically hold auditions each Autumn so join our mailing list today to receive up-to-date news of when audition-booking opens! We also post news via this website and our social media channels.
2. Book
You'll be able to book via this website and will select the time, date and location of your audition. You can also apply for financial assistance to cover costs.
3. Prepare

4. Audition
Our panels want to assess your current ability, but they are also looking to see evidence of potential, your readiness to learn and how keen you are! Do your best, be your best. 
5. Get your result
We email results once all auditions have taken place - typically in early December. If successful, you'll be asked to accept your place in the choir to which you've been allocated. All candidates are sent feedback on their audition so, even if you're not successful this time, you'll receive helpful tips and advice on how to improve your singing.
