VocalsYouth Singing Weekends

Vocals! courses are fun weekend singing events for children of primary school age. They regularly attract up to 200 singers.

Our Vocals events allow singers to experience the thrill of singing as part of a mass choir, provide the opportunity to be an integral part of a smaller choir and the opportunity to take part in exciting concerts. The smaller choirs are divided into three age-groups:

Vocals 1 – school years 1 & 2
Vocals 2
– school years 3 & 4
Vocals 3
– school years 5 – 7

There are no auditions. The children are carefully supervised and conducted by specialist leaders Victoria Barlow and Alison Bennett who have a fun approach to singing and give everyone the chance to perform a variety of music in a friendly and secure atmosphere.

Copies of the music and a rehearsal CD are sent to you before hand so that you can begin practising in your own time.

What the parents say:

“My little boy really enjoyed the course… It was the first thing like this that he has ever done and I was a bit nervous at leaving him, but I felt very reassured by how well organised everything was. He really did have a great time. He’s still talking about it now!”

“It was so fantastic, my kids loved it and the concert was just lovely. Thanks for all the hard work you all put in. We’ll be back!!”

“My little girl took part in vocals yesterday for the first time and she just loved the experience so much! We of course loved seeing the concert in the afternoon too! The whole thing was so very well organised & a lovely thing to be part of!”

“My daughter had a tremendous time, she really loved taking part. The concert was great – lots of fun. Thanks again!”

“We would just like to say a big thank you to everyone involved for giving our daughter a wonderful experience at the Vocals concert last sunday. She enjoyed both the rehearsals at Trent University and singing at the Albert Hall, we were very proud of her. It was lovely to hear all the children singing, we really enjoyed the concert. My daughter made some new friends”
