A Summer Concert Featuring KVU Singers and Bradford & Airedale Youth Choir

July 14 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

KVU Singers is a mixed voice choir based in the Aire Valley.  Today the choir has over 50 members and performs regularly in Skipton and the surrounding area.   The choir has an extensive and varied repertoire of European sacred music and, light hearted and serious part songs.  Most years, the choir presents a spring recital, performing  larger works often with professional soloists and orchestra and  in recent times we have performed works by Karl Jenkins,  Jonathan Wilcocks and Howard Goodall. Our programme in Skipton will include a new song by  a local composer, Alex Johnston-Seymour. The piece is an arrangement of a song written for the Tenmours, a Yorkshire activist rock band. The choir is keen to provide performance opportunities for young musicians and  so guests  for this concert are the energetic Bradford and Airedale Youth Choir (BAYC) who also joined us in June  last year to sing to a full house.  

BAYC  are an  exciting group of contemporary choirs for young people aged 6-18 years that rehearse in Bingley on Monday evenings.  BAYC includes a Junior Choir (6-10 years) and a Senior Choir (11-18 years). They are lead by musical directors Emma and Stephen Bradnum. 

Rehearsals are fun and focussed, and  develop singing technique through contemporary pop and musical theatre. There are plenty of  performance opportunities too.

Their mission is to make excellent vocal training fun, affordable and  accessible to every young person with singing potential  in Bradford and Airedale- because opportunities in music can change lives.
