The Young Singers is an auditioned choir for talented children in school years 4-7, run by the Tri-borough Music Hub in partnership with The Bach Choir.
Previous performances have included the Music for Youth Primary Prom at the Royal Albert Hall, several classical concerts with The Bach Choir at the Royal Festival Hall, and a recording with The BBC Singers and The Bach Choir, also broadcast by BBC Radio 3.
In June 2016, The Young Singers sang with The Bach Choir in a London-themed concert at Central Hall Westminster. The programme included the world premiere of a new choral work by Will Todd, with text by Michael Rosen - London: Lights, Stories, Noise, Dreams, Love and Noodles. The choir will sing with The Bach Choir on a commercial recording of this work in Summer 2018.
The Young Singers will be the onstage chorus for the world premiere of Dreams of Freedom on 26 June 2017 at the Royal Albert Hall, part of an exciting partnership project with Chickenshed Theatre Company and Amnesty International. Click here for more information and to book tickets.
In December 2017 The Young Singers will sing with The Bach Choir at the Royal Festival Hall, as part of Raymond Gubbay Ltd.'s Christmas Classics concert.
