We are delighted to announce the launch of our new Cumbria Youth Choir.
We meet each month for a full day Sunday rehearsal at Trinity School, Carlisle – alongside Cumbria Youth Orchestra. Our next rehearsal dates are:
22 April, 24 June, 8 July
for a concert on 9 July 2018
The choir is open to experienced singers, from Year 9 upwards, who are looking for a new musical challenge and will be lead by award-winning choir director and vocal coach, Charlotte Jackson. We welcome singers from across Cumbria.
Charlotte Jackson: Director
Charlotte is an internationally recognised choral conductor who founded and directed the highly successful group of Amabile Choirs, based in Kendal. She led the choir to win the coveted title of BBC Radio 3 Youth Choir of the Year in November 2006, and has received numerous awards and commendations, both nationally and beyond. Charlotte is a former director of the National Youth Choir of Scotland (NYCoS) Dumfries Choir and is sought after as a freelance conductor and choral director. She has directed, conducted and taught on numerous choral courses, and has been the musical director for a programme of BBC Songs of Praise.
Tales of Eden
Following the success of last years’ sell-out Tales of Cumberland concert The Sands, the choir will be singing a brand new commissioned work in the concert in July accompanied by CYO and musicians from the Manchester Camerata.d
