In just eight weeks Ben Goodson’s 40-piece junior choir miraculously mastered three difficult songs…Three-part harmony presented no problems and each item was sung from memory. Henley Standard
The junior choir meets on Mondays at Marketplace, Henley between 5.30-6.15pm. There are NO AUDITIONS and the first session can be taken as a trial with no obligation.
The choir sings a variety of music – the aim is to have fun while learning to sing to a high standard. The 2014/15 repertoire included: Hallelujah, Count on Me; Panis Angelicus; All night, all day; With a little help from my friends; When I grow up; Naughty; Consider yourself and Bad Guys.
Junior choir also gets involved in special Workshops such as that with superb South African singer Joyce Moholoagae, plus performances including one at the Kenton Theatre and at the Family Day at the Barn Bar during Henley Royal Regatta.
The Youth Choirs gave 2 performances in December. The first was as part of the Living Advent calendar and the second was at the Henley Choral Society’s Christmas concert. Recent reviews include:
“the Junior Youth Choir were a force to be reckoned with…. Confident and articulate…. An absolute delight”. “The sound of the Senior Youth Choir was beautiful”.
