Berkshire County Youth Choirs Auditions

Join the singing community at Berkshire Maestros by auditioning for a place with Berkshire Children's Choir, Berkshire Young Voices and Berkshire Youth Choir in 2020-21.

We are delighted that you are considering auditioning for BCC, BYV or BYC for 2020-21 and we hope that you enjoy preparing, practising and performing for your audition. We are looking for singers with positive potential for the future. Emphasis is upon finding singers who love singing and making music with others.

Through training, performances and opportunities it is our mission to enable every child to be the best that they can be.

Top Tips (for getting the most out of your audition)

  • Arrive in time for a good warm up
  • Choose a piece which you can sing really well, have performed before and will show off your voice– the panel want to hear what you can do, not what you can’t, so that you can show off your true potential
  • You are allowed to make mistakes! It is your overall ability and general musicianship which the panel will want to hear – so enjoy the performance and take every opportunity to share your own musical ideas

Some of our current choir members also shared their recommendations and advice for anyone considering auditioning for our county choirs:

Charlie: "If you like singing, it's fun! You get to go to some places you wouldn't normally, and tour is great!"

Izzy: "Being a part of BYC is amazing, there are so many opportunities to perform a great variety of pieces in amazing places and make the best friends who share your passion for singing! In your audition, just go for it, stay calm and have fun!"

Laura: "I love being a part of BYC, as it is such as inclusive environment. I have had so many opportunities that I wouldn't have had without choir, such as singing in the BBC Proms. My advice for auditonees is to just relax and have fun! It is not as daunting as it may seem."

Jess: "BYC has provided me with so many amazing opportunities + taught me so much as a singer! I am incredibly grateful for the friends I have made + the music I discovered through BYC. My advice to auditionees would be: know what your audition piece is about + do your best to convey it."

Auditions for Berkshire Children's Choir will take place during September. To book your audition for BCC, please e-mail us using to register your interest.
