Choir stages singing day for Sussex youth
Sussex choir Coro Nuovo is offering aspiring young singers the chance to flex their vocal chords with a free taster day led by internationally renowned musicians.
Open to young people aged 12 and above, the Coro Nuovo Singing Day will be led by international tenor Andrew Rees, who studied at Guildhall, London and regularly works with the Royal Opera House. Andrew also judges the National Eisteddfod of Wales every year.
The day will feature a packed itinerary of musical sessions, and attendees will have the opportunity to work with esteemed vocal coach Jeffrey Lloyd-Roberts, an award-winning alumnus of the Royal Northern College of Music who has also performed at the BBC Proms.
“Youth choirs are on the rise but there are still a lot of gifted young singers working in isolation,” said Managing Chair, Catherine Kent. “This day is about encouraging young people to get involved with other likeminded individuals, and have the chance to work with some musicians who are at the top of their game.”
The day is Coro Nuovo’s latest initiative to support the next generation of singers. The final to the Coro Nuovo Young Musicians’ Bursary took place in August, with trumpeter Gideon Brooks taking home a £1000 prize.
The Coro Nuovo Singing Day takes place at 9:30 to 14:30 on Saturday 11 November at Oathall Community College, Haywards Heath. To sign up, visit: www.coronuovo.org.uk/singingday.

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
