"Everyone was transformed in all sorts of ways during the preparations and the performance."
Meet and learn
Queen's Park Junior Singers is the perfect place to gain theatrical and musical experience while also having fun and making new friends. The choir is open to children aged eight and over. QPJS is affiliated with Queen's Park Singers, the adult choir, who invite us to perform in their concerts. In addition there are other events, for example, carol singing and Queens Park open gardens day.
Serious choral skills are at the core of Queen's Park Junior Singers. Harmony and vocal training are imparted with the belief that children are quite easily capable of handling more challenging music than they are usually given credit for.
As well as performing in concert, children are also given the chance to take part in fully staged opera productions. The added discipline of having to sing and act simultaneously with adult singers helps them develop skills and confidence, not just in singing and performing but also in managing their time, learning about commitment and team work, self-discipline and making new friendships.
