Dulwich Youth Choir

Dulwich Youth Choir

Do you love to sing?
Come and join in the joy of music and power of singing
in a fun and inclusive community right
here in the heart of Dulwich Village!

We are very excited to be launching Dulwich Youth Choir, a youth choir based at St Barnabas, run by our Assistant Director of Music, Owen Elsley. All students in years 8–13 are encouraged to come along to experience the fun of singing together in a choir; whether you have lots of musical experience or not at all, you are most welcome at DYC!

The choir rehearse on Friday evenings from 6.00–7.00pm.

We’ll cover a wide range of repertoire and musical styles, with regular opportunities both to participate in choral services at St Barnabas and to perform in the wider community. There is no requirement to be able to read music and no formal musical education is required. And what’s more, it’s totally free!
