St Francis Youth Choir

The St Francis Youth Choir is the most recent musical development at St Francis Church, and was formed when we identified a need for a choir for young people who cannot commit to the demands of the main choir. It is also perfect for the girls of the main choir who retire at 15 years old; they can then transfer to this choir, where there is less regular commitment, continue their singing at St Francis, and have more time to focus on forthcoming school exams.

Rehearsals are not held on a fixed day, but a list of rehearsal times are issued per term to singers. The choir performs at least twice a term at the 9.15am service, usually during the administration of communion.

Boys or girls can join this choir; the only initial requirement is that singers must be aged between 13 and 18. There are currently a number of vacancies, so if you know someone who might be interested, please get in touch with Andrew Henthorn (contact details below).
