DYC

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 new youth choir based at St Barnabas, run by our new Assistant Director of Music, Owen Elsley. All students aged 13 – 18 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 will rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 7.00 – 8:15pm, followed by pizza. The first rehearsal for 2022 will be on Tuesday 20th September. 

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!
