Welcome to Oxford Youth Choirs

SPRING TERM will start on 16th January, and we will be working on Zoom until further notice.
We are busy working on a new programme in response to our recent survey of members, and are pleased to announce that soprano Sophie Bevan MBE has joined our illustrious team of patrons. Sophie's career has included performances at Glyndebourne, English National Opera, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and the Metropolitan Opera, New York.

Oxford Youth Choirs is a group of six choirs, including the Oxford Girls' Choir, for children aged between 4 and 18. We meet on Saturday mornings in Oxford at the Cherwell School North Site. Promoting musical diversity, we perform a range of music from jazz to opera. Our ethos is excellence for all - every choir member is encouraged and supported to be the best singer and musician they can be.

In the words of our patron, internationally renowned baritone, Roderick Williams OBE

"I have seen the choir grow from strength to incredible strength and have worked alongside them in opera, concert, jazz and dance, in London, across the UK and abroad - this is no ordinary choral training!"

In spite of COVID we are recruiting now for the school year 2020-2021:
