The London Youth Choir (LYC) is a family of five choirs, established in 2012 by Suzi Digby OBE and Rachel Staunton to provide singers living or educated within Greater London with an outstanding choral education through exceptional musical training and high-level performance opportunities.
The choir’s vision is to inspire young people to achieve the highest possible standard in choral singing, musicianship and vocal production in a supportive and welcoming environment, whilst representing the city of London. Alongside regular weekly rehearsals, LYC also leads ‘Aspire‘, a community engagement programme in collaboration with music hubs across all 33 London boroughs.
The five choirs of LYC rehearse on Monday evenings during term time in the City of London. Membership of the choirs is open to anyone from school year 3 (age 7) – age 21 and auditions are held during the first week of each school term. Financial support is available.
