Ulster Youth Choir and Training Choir selection

Congratulations to a number of Grosvenor’s talented choristers who have recently been selected onto the Ulster Youth Choir and Ulster Youth Training Choir respectively.

Participating as members of the 2019 Ulster Youth Choir are: Chloe Hunter-Rea, Beth Vance, Anna Cousins, Anna Smith, Adam Blair, Tyler Smith and Daniel Stewart, while, in addition, Stephanie Wallace, Sarah Whittle, Ruth Sellar and Emily Woods have been chosen as members of the Ulster Youth Training Choir.

The above selections were made following auditions held recently in Grosvenor by Andrew Nunn, the UYC’s Artistic Director.

Each year both the  Ulster Youth Choir (open to young people aged 18 – 24) and the Training Choir (open to 15 – 18 year olds) run residential courses which prove invaluable in providing first-class training for all in attendance; this year’s courses are set to take place from 14th – 20th, and the 21st – 27th July respectively, while a twentieth anniversary tour to France is also penciled in, along with a Concert in the Ulster Hall on 27th July.

Well done to all of the aforementioned pupils on their selection and we wish them the best of luck in their musical-related endeavors over the summer period.
