The Royal Greenwich and Blackheath Halls Youth Choir, a classical youth choir for young people in Key Stages 2 and 3, was successfully launched in 2015 in collaboration between Blackheath Halls and Royal Greenwich Music Hub, in response to an indentified need within the borough.
The choir offers young people within the borough access to classical music and provides a thorough musical training and high level performance opportunities both in Royal Greenwich and across London. Schools and pupils are selected in collaboration with the Royal Greenwich Music Hub and there are approximately 45-50 members. The choir meet in the Recital Room, Blackheath Halls every Monday to rehearse and performs throughout the year.
