The Master's Charity

London Youth Choirs

My chosen charity for the coming year is the London Youth Choirs. Over the last couple of years, I have been to a large number of their concerts and have both seen and heard, first hand, the quite inspirational work that they undertake. The London Youth Choirs charity runs 6 separate choirs which channel boys and girls as young as 7 years old through to the top level Chamber Choir (top age 23) as they learn and mature.

Identifying children with musical potential from all over London - often from quite deprived backgrounds, bringing them to rehearsals every week during term time using a network of chaperones to facilitate the travel logistics, and teaching them not just how to sing, but also all the discipline and performance skills required to stand on stage - all this adds up to a big operation.

I am a huge believer in the power of music - particularly the choral variety - to inspire, enthuse and unite, and I really hope that you will be able to experience the feel-good factor, the fun and the extraordinarily high quality of music delivered by the London Youth Choirs during the course of this year.
