New Student - Join Music Groups – Monster in the Maze – Children’s Chorus

The Children’s Chorus will be joining the exciting Sheffield Music Hub choir Junior Voices and Youth Voices for the rehearsals and performance on Friday 1st November and Saturday 2nd November.

We are looking for singers who want to join the Children’s Chorus for the semi - staged opera production at the world-famous Crucible Theatre. 

The performances take place at the end of the October half term holidays with rehearsals taking place throughout September and October.

Singers do not need previous experience on stage or singing in a choir but need to bring a love for singing and the excitement of preparing an opera to be performed at the Crucible Theatre.

No audition is required but places may be limited to a first come first served basis depending on your voice type.

The cost of taking part is £50. 

Participation is FREE if you:

  • Are in receipt of free school meals
  • Are Looked After
  • Already attend a Music Group run by Sheffield Music Hub (Band A, B or C subscription)

More details can be found on our fees page  

You must be available for all rehearsals and performances to take part.
