Rock Up and Sing! Youth Choir in Harrogate

Aspiring young musicians hoping to develop their vocal talents are being invited to audition for a leading Harrogate choir.

Rock Up and Sing!’s Youth Choir is recruiting new members, with auditions due to take place in early September.

The Youth Choir rehearses once a month on a Sunday, from 10.45am to 3pm, at Rock Up and Sing!’s Harrogate studio. Extra rehearsals are added in the run-up to concerts, which take place every few months.

Choir director Rhiannon Gayle said: “Our Youth Choir has been going strong for four years now and we’ve had some wonderful musicians in the group in that time.

“It’s a really supportive group, ideal for anyone with an interest in music – perhaps as a career later in life, or just for enjoyment.

As well as learning to sing as part of a group, choir members work on performance skills and vocal techniques to develop their abilities. Combined with regular concerts and choir competitions, being part of the Youth Choir boosts their confidence and social skills. The auditions are open to anyone of high school age who has an interest in music. To book a place, call 01423 508500 or email
