For more than 30 years, our family of choirs has seen generations of young people experience the thrill of vocal performance. From the age of 6 upwards, the FYC Training Choir and FYC Junior Choir are designed to prepare members for auditioning for the main Farnham Youth Choir where they will be ready to perform at the very highest level.
The FYC Alumni Choir enables ex-members to return and continue this exciting tradition after they have left FYC.
FARNHAM YOUTH CHOIR
This upper-voice choir of boys and girls aged 11-18 performs to an extremely high standard and draws members from a 15-mile radius of Farnham. The choir rehearses weekly at Frensham Heights School on Wednesdays from 5.15-6.45pm during term time and periodically at weekends. Singers enjoy a very broad repertoire of sacred and secular songs and perform regularly both in concert and competition, locally, nationally and internationally. The Musical Director is Jo Tomlinson and entry is by audition.
FYC JUNIOR Choir
This upper-voice choir of boys and girls aged between 9-13 draws from a 15-mile radius of Farnham and is conducted by Patrick Barrett. The choir rehearses weekly at Frensham Heights School on Wednesdays from 5.15-6.35pm during term time and periodically at weekends. It provides a foundation of good singing technique and musicianship and aims to introduce youngsters to the fun and commitment of high quality performance: many choir members audition successfully for the Farnham Youth Choir. Entry is by audition.
FYC TRAINING CHOIR
This singing group for boys and girls aged between 6-9 draws mainly from around the Farnham area and is conducted by Lucy Morris. The choir rehearses weekly at Frensham Heights School for an hour on Wednesdays from 5.15-6.15pm. The choir is fun and lively and children are encouraged in their musical and vocal development. The choir provides a valuable stepping stone to the FYC Girls Choir and FYC Boys Choir and there are no audition requirements for entry.
FYC Alumni Choir
This SATB choir offers past members of FYC the opportunity to take part in singing days (currently twice a year), enabling them to meet old friends and sing together in FYC’s inimitable and memorable style. The choir regularly takes part in FYC’s Christmas and summer concerts, performing both solo items and with other FYC choirs.
