Just thought I'd tell you all about the new Junior Choir we've started at my church in Southampton. At the beginning of October, we went to four local primary schools recruiting for a completely new junior choir to sing separately from our experienced adult choir (though sometimes we will sing together). It's been a great project - we've only been going a month, but we have just under 60 children - they sing their first service of Choral Evensong this coming Sunday.

If you're interested in getting more kids in your choir and getting them and their parents into church, I'd really recommend you go into schools - we've found that children just love singing and that the parents are really supportive!

Sounds like a good idea. I've approached our local primary school with an offer to get involved, so we'll see what happens.

What did you decide as a name for your junior choir? I remember you'd been canvassing ideas a few months ago.
Best of luck with this fine venture! Smile

It's called Treble Rebels - I have to say this was NOT my idea - personally I don't like the name. We have the outline of a website up:

Good luck with that diapason8 - if you're interested to know exactly how we did it, what we said to the kids etc. then I'm happy to explain all!
