Broadland Youth Choir is looking for young people aged seven to 18 to join the group of more than 40 singers.

The first big event for those who join the choir in the next few weeks is likely to be the EDP Festival of Carols, the Eastern Daily Press’ seasonal celebration which is held every December at St Andrew’s Hall in Norwich.

“To sing is just a lovely thing to do. You do get a wonderful sense of achievement from it when you work at some songs and then you go out and perform them on stage, ” said Broadland Youth Choir’s musical director Carole Tims, who added that the group was also a great way for young people with a passion for music to make friends with similar interests.

Meanwhile some of the current youth choir members are preparing for two big events next month. They will be performing with vocal group Blake at Cromer Pier on October 10 and they will be singing in the musical Jesus Christ Superstar which is at Norwich Theatre Royal from October 19 to 24. Last year the choir appeared in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the city theatre.

About the opportunities for the young singers to perform alongside professionals, Mrs Tims said: “It means a lot to have the chance to perform on stage with the professionals, money cannot buy those experiences. It is something that is very inspiring.”

Broadland Youth Choir rehearsals take place at Salhouse Jubilee Hall. For more about joining the choir, visit or call Mrs Tims on 12. Anybody who is able to provide sponsorship for the choir should also call Mrs Tims on the above number.
