Halcyon Singers

Welcome to the webpage for the youth choir of Harrogate Choral.

The Halcyon Singers was launched on 19 September 2015, with guest conductor John Rutter helping to make the day a not-to-be forgotten experience. It is a choir for young singers from year 8 upwards.

We now rehearse with the adult choir on Wednesday evenings as well as having special days at the weekend, once a term, just for us! Halcyon singers are an enthusiatic group of young singers who really enjoy the music, discipline and repertoire of choral singing. You are guaranteed a challenging - and fun - time!

If you love singing, come along have have a go. We want to help you find out what your voice can do, and take your singing to a higher level and hope to give you the help, encouragement and skills you need. Although we would prefer that you have a basic ability to read music you don't need to be a skilled sight-reader as this is one of the skills you will be able to learn and refine whilst singing with the choir.

Interested in joining? Email to find out more. We look forward to seeing you!

As well as being governed by the Rules and Constitution of HCS we have a few policies to protect the safety of all young people singing with us and to ensure the choir runs smoothly and maintains its high standards. More details available on request.
* DBS checks - All adults involved with the Halcyon Youth Choir on an ongoing basis as conductors or administrators are required to pass a DBS check.
* Behaviour - We expect all young people who join the choir to behave in a respectful and mature manner. If a member becomes disruptive, they will be asked to leave.
* Attendance - Choir members are expected to attend all rehearsals and if possible the special days. Anyone persistently absent without good reason, will be asked to leave. These policies may be changed or added to over time. We'll make sure choir members are made aware of these.
