Peterborough Young Singers are committed to providing opportunities for young people to sing together to the highest standards. Our junior choir, for children aged between 7 and 13 years, and our senior choir, young adults between the ages of 13 and 21 perform as distinct groups with appropriate repertoire but do also sing as one voice.
The choirs meet on Saturday mornings, during term time, at our venue CSK Church, Silver Hill, Hampton, PE7 8FF.
We don’t have auditions, if you are enthusiastic about singing, come and join us!
Our youth choir is an independent organisation that has been together since the early 1990s and is run by a group of dedicated parents who are focused on the young people’s enjoyment.
