'It's fun! You get to make friends outside school. The places you get to go and the performances we do are awesome! We learn about octaves, harmonies, rounds and hand actions and how to sing properly'.
– Isobel, member of Young Voices
'I really enjoy the concerts especially the bigger events like Moonwalk and singing at Birmingham University. I have made some good friends and enjoy singing lots of different music'.
– Harry, member of Youth Voices
We currently have four regular MusicShare choirs that meet weekly during term-time spanning ages 0-99.
Mini Voices is a weekly music group run by a highly experienced music teacher, focused on learning the basic building blocks of music that are pulse, rhythm and pitch. We are currently meeting outside in central Lichfield from 10:00am-11:00am on a Monday morning, which includes time for chat.
Young Voices is a non-audition community choir created for children who enjoy singing with others and want to learn a wide range of music. Over the years the choir has had the opportunity to sing in the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; Symphony Hall, Birmingham and regularly in Lichfield Cathedral. We are currently meeting outside in central Lichfield from 4.30pm-5.30pm on a Monday afternoon.
Youth Voices is also a non-audition community choir for young people that undertakes a wide repertoire and regularly performs at the Cathedral and at venues across the diocese and beyond. The most recent trip before lockdown was to sing Evensong at Merton College, Oxford. We are currently meeting outside in central Lichfield from 10.30am-11.30am on a Saturday morning.
Ladies Who Lark
Ladies who Lark is a group of women who meet weekly to enjoy the many benefits of singing. We sing a wide range of repertoire from jazz to classical, from folk music to songs from the musicals. We are currently meeting outside in central Lichfield (with options to Zoom in or receive a video) from 12:00pm-1:00pm on a Monday lunchtime.
Lichfield Cathedral Choir
MusicShare was established in 2003 as a programme that took Cathedral Choristers out into the wider community to work with children of a similar age. The Cathedral Choristers are still heavily involved in the work today as Young Singing Leaders and exemplars of what is possible with dedication and hard work. Learn more about Choristerships.
