CLS is the official rehearsal venue for London Youth Choir

Monday, 05 February 2018

Dubbed “The coolest choirs inside the M25” by Gareth Malone (also a Patron), the London Youth Choir (LYC) is a family of five choirs established in 2012 by Suzi Digby OBE and Rachel Staunton. Its main aim is to provide singers living or educated within Greater London with an outstanding choral education through exceptional musical training and high-level performance opportunities. The choir’s vision is to “inspire young people to achieve the highest possible standard in choral singing, musicianship and vocal production in a supportive and welcoming environment, whilst representing the city of London." Alongside regular weekly rehearsals, LYC also leads ‘Aspire', a community engagement programme in collaboration with music hubs across all 33 London boroughs.

City of London School is delighted to be the official venue of LYC’s rehearsals. These are held in the Great Hall and the Music department on Mondays from 4.45pm to 9pm, during term time. Membership of the choirs is open to anyone from school year 3 (age 7) to age 21. Auditions take place during the first week of each school term.
