We are delighted to be relaunching choir rehearsals on 18th May 2021. We will initially be meeting in line with all social distancing and other covid safety measures required. 

Our rehearsals will take place in the main hall at Victoria Hall Saltaire. We look forward to welcoming back all our old members and new singers too. It’s a fantastic time to join GYC. As we emerge from the pandemic, we have so many things to look forward to together and we hope you can be part of it.

At Home For Christmas – 20th December 4pm

After a hugely challenging year, we are delighted to be able to stream a very special prerecorded live Christmas concert. With very limited rehearsal time, we have managed to get the choir back together in person to film a wonderful festive concert at Victoria Hall, Saltaire, at the heart of this UNESCO world heritage site. This will be free to watch on our YouTube channel from 4pm on Sunday 20th December. Donations are welcome for our Christmas appeal, supporting Bradford Hospitals Charity and the Cellar Trust. 

TEDx Bradford

Our director Maria has been invited as a guest speaker to this fantastic ideas sharing event in the Science and Media Museum in Bradford, 16th January. She’ll be giving a talk about the formation and journey of the choir, especially the positive culture we seek to create. The choir will be giving a short performance. It’s going to be an interesting day, our first performance in a cinema! For further info about TEDx and other events we have coming up please click here.

Christmas Concert

On Sunday 16th December we had a truly amazing Christmas concert in Saltaire. All the hard work over weeks of rehearsals paid off, as the choir gave a stunning performance of Christmas classics and choir favourites. The audience was packed and a great time was had by all. Thank you to everyone who came and supported our concert in aid of Bradford North Foodbank.

100 Choir Members

We are delighted that in our first month over 100 people have joined the choir. We are so excited about this staggering response. It is absolutely fantastic that so many people want to get involved and sing with us. We are now nearly at full capacity for choir members and have started a waiting list. How exciting that so many people have come together behind our vision for a fun, creative and excellent contemporary choir. We have had an amazing start to the journey and look forward to what’s next!

BBC Music Day

Friday 5th October was the annual BBC Music Day. This year there was a focus on the work of choirs across the UK, so we were invited to go on the BBC Radio Leeds Breakfast show and talk to Richard Stead about the launch of our choir. A group of our choir members and our Director Maria Mullin went live on air bright and early. We sang live on the radio and got to talk about the first few exciting weeks of our new choir. It was fantastic to play a part in this national BBC event. We are looking forward to working with BBC Radio Leeds again later in the year on further events.
