The new Tri-borough Chamber Choir starts in September 2017. This will be an auditioned choir for secondary-aged young people in school years 7-13, and a progression route for children who have previously been members of The Young Singers choir. The Chamber Choir will sing mostly classical repertoire, as well as folk songs and early music. Rehearsals will include tuition on music-reading and sight-singing.
