Bristol Youth Choir is honoured to be one of Colston Hall’s Young Companies in Residence alongside the Bristol Youth Orchestra and for the last three years have taken part in Bristol International Jazz Festival. In 2015 the BYC gave a concert on five fishing boats in the middle of Leigh Woods for the National Trust as part of Luke Jerram’s Withdrawn project.
The choirs are directed by David Ogden, Martin Le Poidevin and Elinor Cooper.
Bristol Youth Choir is run by Bristol Plays Music, the Arts Council England’s Music Hub for the city of Bristol. It’s a partnership between Bristol Music Trust and Bristol City Council. It will ensure that the legacy of Bristol Arts and Music Service’s success in delivering high quality music education to over 8,000 children a year is preserved and is strengthened by the partnership with Colston Hall Education.
