Come and hear the young voices of the RSCM's Millennium Youth Choir in a free hour-long concert at Liverpool's Metropolitan Cathedral.

The RSCM Millennium Youth Choir was founded in 1999 at the suggestion of the Archbishop of Canterbury, offering young singers from the ages of 16 to 23 years the opportunity to sing in some of the UK’s most beautiful sacred buildings. Residential courses are held during school and university holidays, and include individual musical and vocal tuition, as well as participation in services and performance in public concerts.

Recent courses have taken them to Assisi in a choral pilgrimage with the BBC, singing in Daily Service broadcasts and giving a live broadcast of Radio 4 Sunday Worship from the Upper Basilica of San Francesco in Assisi, and recording Choral Vespers for BBC Radio 3 in the San Rufino Cattedrale. In recent years the choir has sung in a variety of venues from prisons to some of the UK’s most beautiful sacred buildings including St Paul’s Cathedral in London, the Cathedrals of St Mary’s and St Giles in Edinburgh, St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, Salisbury Cathedral and many others. The choir has recorded two CDs, the most recent in 2007 which was recorded and produced by John Rutter.

The choir has appeared several times on BBC television singing on BBC1’s Songs of Praise, and broadcast on BBC Radios 2, 3 and 4, and is making its BBC Proms debut in September 2009. The RSCM Millennium Youth Choir is conducted by David Ogden, assisted by the organist Daniel Moult and the vocal coach Hilary Llystyn Jones.
