From Beyond Blue:
Singing at the top of your voice whether in the shower, in the car, or at a gig, has the power to release sheer, unbridled joy. Singing in harmony with other people however takes things to another level.
Not only does singing with others make us feel good, it’s incredibly beneficial for our health, too. Neuroscience indicates that it makes us happier, healthier, smarter and more creative. And by increasing the brain’s neuroplasticity (the brain’s ability to change continuously throughout an individual’s life), it can also improve memory, language and concentration.
In terms of mental health, research shows that singing collectively can decrease symptoms of anxiety, stress and depression. The social bonding experienced while singing with other people triggers ‘feel-good’ hormones such as endorphins and oxytocin, which in turn boost our sense of wellbeing – as well as our immune systems.

“…most of all I like choir because it’s like a kind of family” (YAV chorister)
“I enjoy the friendly atmosphere and the acceptance of different people from different backgrounds” (YAV chorister)
Junior Choir, boys and girls age 5-7: 5pm-6.15pm, Wednesdays in term time.
Intermediate Choir, boys and girls age 8-10: 4.45-6.15pm, Wednesdays in term time.
For young people and adults over the age of 11 a short relaxed audition is required. In the audition the chorister will be asked to sing a song of their own choosing, this can be anything they are comfortable with, and the Artistic Director will go through their voice part range. The audition takes about 5 minutes and is followed by a chat with the chorister, and if required the parent/guardian about the most suitable choir placement. Please contact the choir office to arrange a time. Rehearsals are Thursdays in term time.
Contact the office to arrange a visit to the rehearsals of our Male Voice Choir. Rehearsals are Thursdays in term time.
Boys and girls ages 5-10 years, all welcome.
