At Blackheath Halls our strong belief is that continued, in-depth access to high level music making has a huge and lasting impact on young people’s lives and will make a real and long-lasting difference to them as they grow older.
The Blackheath Halls Youth Choir comprises of 70 young people aged 8 to 18 with a gift for music from across our local area. The choir have previously teamed up with English Touring Opera and the London Philharmonic Orchestra for performances, as well as regularly performing in Blackheath Halls and other prestigious venues.
The choir is free of charge as part of our commitment to giving all talented young musicians in our local boroughs access to high quality music education. Musical opportunities are also provided outside of choir sessions; recently choir members enjoyed workshops about songwriting and musical theatre.
Young people from our choir gain access to prestigious opportunities as a result of being choir members; most notably, choir members have been taken on by the Royal Opera House Youth Company, the English National Opera Youth Company, the National Youth Choir and one member is now studying voice at Junior Trinity.
The group is split into Junior (Years 3-6) and Senior (Years 7+) choirs and rehearses on Monday afternoons during term time at Blackheath Halls.
