The Voice Festival UK runs an exciting year-round programme for under 18s, encouraging you to discover and develop your love of a cappella singing. Young singers have the chance to work with world-renowned a cappella stars, as well as performing with other singers of all ages.
We know that singing the music you love (with no instruments to hide behind!) is a fantastic way of boosting musicianship and performance skills, as well as teamwork, confidence and creativity.
Ongoing Youth opportunities include Take the Stage at the London A Cappella Festival, our annual Youth Competition, and our youth workshops and masterclasses.
We often hold workshops and master-classes around the UK, led by top performers and educators from the a cappella world. Topics cover anything from rhythm, balance and blend to improvisation, beatboxing and choreography, allowing singers to perfect their techniques and learn new ones. Some workshops are specifically targeted at youth groups, others give young singers the opportunity to learn alongside singers from a range of universities and communities and find out more about music-making opportunities beyond school. A Voice Festival workshop will ensure that your rehearsals are never the same again…
In this annual event, groups put together a set displaying their character and talent, and perform it alongside other youth groups from around the UK. It’s a brilliant opportunity to meet, watch and learn from other groups, and have lots of fun along the way! A Voice Festival UK judge will provide high quality feedback and present special awards, as well as crowning the Voice Festival UK Youth Champions.
Our 2016 Youth Competition took place on Saturday 19th April as part of our annual Festival Weekend, and was won by the Tiffinians. Registration for the 2017 competition will open in the autumn.
