The Cathedral Youth Choir is a vibrant community of enthusiastic young people, aged 7 – 18, who travel from across Nottingham sing together in a fun and relaxed music atmosphere.
Led by our Youth Choir Director, Ellie Martin, both our Junior and Senior Choirs sing a varied repertoire of both sacred and secular music spanning the centuries, and often sing in two or three parts.
Members of the Senior Choir meet for an hour before the main Youth Choir rehearsal, working together as a mixed-voice SATB ensemble, or upper voices and lower voices separately. They usually join the Junior Choir during their rehearsal to form the main Cathedral Youth Choir.
Recent concerts have included Horowitz's Captain Noah and his Floating Zoo, a Good Friday performance of Pergolesi's Stabat Mater, joining the Cathedral Choir for part of Monteverdi's Vespers and most recently, the role of the Sparrows and Fish in the community opera Tobias and the Angel by Jonathan Dove and David Lan alongside Streetwise Opera and children from Music for Everyone.
In addition to their own concerts, the choir regularly lead the music at the Sunday 6pm Mass and the Christmas Eve 6pm Vigil Mass each year at the Cathedral.
