Student wins place in National Youth Choir

Mon, Nov 30th, 2020
Worth School

Congratulations to Henry Byrne, a Music Scholar in Year 12 at Worth, who has just secured a place in the National Youth Choir of Great Britain (Training Choir).

Entry to the choir is by audition only and is highly competitive, drawing applications from experienced young singers throughout the country, so this is an outstanding achievement. The choir will provide Henry with the opportunity to work with other outstanding young singers to a high standard with some of the finest choral conductors in the UK. Henry joins three other 2020 Worth alumni and former Music Scholars who are currently members of the main choir.

Henry has throughout his time at Worth been a committed singer, he is a member of the School’s Schola Cantorum and Chamber Choir and is also an accomplished pianist and clarinettist.

Worth has an outstanding choral tradition and its choral alumni include distinguished choral directors, a former member of the Sistine Chapel Choir and a number of former choral and organ scholars at Oxford, Cambridge and Durham. Central to that tradition is the balance of inclusivity with excellence and the School’s main choir, the Schola Cantorum, which has sung in the Sistine Chapel and for the Pope in St Peter's Basilica, is open to all students in the School.
