A smaller SATB chamber choir, the Youth choir is an addition to the Senior Choir for older girls, or the close-harmony New London Barbers for boys whose voices have changed. It gives an opportunity to sing a more traditional repertoire of choral music. The atmosphere is relaxed – the pace is challenging – the aim is for excellence.
A superb way to improve sight-reading skills, many members of Youth Choir have continued on to University Choral Scholarships.
The choir gives regular concerts and frequently joins Highgate Choral Society performances as well as taking part in the annual Christmas concert given by the entire choir membership.
Recent repertoire has included:
- Haydn’s Creation
- Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas
- Horovitz’ Captain Noah and His Floating Zoo
- Bach’s B Minor Mass
- Gilbert & Sullivan’s Trial by Jury – semi-staged public performance
- Handel’s Messiah (with HCS at the Royal Albert Hall)
- Madrigals as well as songs by Eric Whitacre
