We are delighted to announce the launch of a new youth chamber choir for boys and girls aged between 13 – 18 years old from all over Shropshire.
Mr Dominic Neville, who joined Shrewsbury High as Assistant Head and Director of Sixth Form this term, is an accomplished musician and former Choral Scholar in the world famous choir of King’s College, Cambridge. He has conducted in many of Europe’s most prestigious venues, for BBC Doctor Who and a Hollywood feature film, and has trained choirs for Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra, as well as the award winning Paul McCreesh and Gabrieli Consort, whose recording of Coronation Music recently attracted a 5 star review in The Times.
It is this very special link with conductor Paul McCreesh that has inspired Mr Neville to set up the Shrewsbury Youth Chamber Choir with Mr McCreesh as Patron, a youth choir open to pupils aged 13-18 from all schools across Shropshire.
Mr Neville is looking forward to welcoming boys and girls to join this new, exciting and ambitious choir for young people. Rehearsals will take place at Shrewsbury High School every Wednesday evening from 4.30 – 6.00pm and anyone interested in getting involved and would like to come for a taster session and find out more should email ShrewsburyYouthCC@gmail.com
