NewYVC brings together some of East London's most talented young musicians in a dynamic programme of training and performance opportunities.
Our resident high-level, open-access youth choir is made up of local singers aged 10-18 and supported by a team of Young Music Mentors aged 18-25. The choir provides opportunities to develop singing skills learning a broad range of repertoire, with great concerts and opportunities to train and develop leadership skills. The choir have recently performed at the Houses of Parliament, The Southbank Centre and the Brandenburg Choral Festival.
We also run high-level choral teacher training sessions. The training offered is based on the CME model with levelled certification, levels 1- 3. NewYVC act as the training choir for these sessions.
NewYVC rehearse on Tuesdays during term time, 4.30-6.30pm at Stratford Circus Arts Centre.

Newham Harmony is a massed singing project delivered in partnership with Living Song and Newham Music. 24 primary and secondary school choirs across Newham sing together in a shared repertoire of music celebrating our community.
At the heart of the project is New YVC Choir, our talented young artists from Newham who lead and support in workshops, acting as role models and demonstrating what it takes to be a young leader and to develop as a singer.
The choir work with 500 young people and their teachers through workshops and cluster rehearsals with amazing guest artists. The project includes a rich repertoire of music from across the world and performance opportunities at incredible venues.
It has been so much more than just learning songs. In the cluster rehearsals and the workshops in school there was always a focus on working together, listening to each other and mutual respect. I have been amazed by the volume and variety of music the children have tackled and I am so pleased our pupils had the opportunity to take part.Charlotte Nohavicka, Gallions Primary School – mass singing project 2017
