This Sunday on BBC Radio 4

This Sunday (3 May) at 7.10am the BBC Radio 4 Sunday programme features the work of our singing programme, looking at how we’ve moved our programme of 18 after-school choirs online and continued our work with schools through daily YouTube singing sessions led by our Choral Directors. We’ll hear how staff are putting new digital and presentational skills to use, and how valuable the children we’re working with find the continuing rehearsals.

My voice is changing right now so I’m in this range where I can sing quite high or low, so I can either sing treble or tenor right now! When I sing it gives me more confidence in school and everywhere. The whole choir feels like a community and you get to meet lots of new people as well. My favourite pieces are some of the Glorias, I also like singing in other languages. 13 years old, Leeds Cathedral Senior Boys Choir ... See MoreSee Less

I feel happy because it just lets all your emotions out. I like singing. My favourite thing about choir is singing, and I’m really excited for the BBC broadcast. We’ve been rehearsing for it since September, since we came back from the holidays. If you feel nervous about singing imagine it’s only you in the room and you’re singing to yourself. When I joined I was really nervous, but my sister was in the choir (she’s in Seniors now) and she helped me to sing. 10 years old, Bradford Junior Choir ... See MoreSee Less
