The Opera North Young Voices (ONYV) offers a perfect transition between the Children’s Chorus and the Youth Chorus and continues to provide expert training to enable young people to perfect their vocal technique and musicianship skills.

Members receive training and guidance from experienced choral leaders and have the opportunity to work with professional directors and movement specialists to develop skills in drama and stagecraft.

There are performing opportunities throughout the year, both locally and nationally, alongside professionals such as the Orchestra of Opera North  and the Chorus of Opera North. Repertoire includes both secular and sacred music, from a variety of genres, with a particular focus of classical music/opera. Members also have the opportunity to audition for mainstage productions.

Entry is by audition, but we are looking for potential and welcome singers of all levels of experience. Membership fees apply, but we are able to offer financial assistance to ensure that costs do not create a barrier to taking part.
