The Dronfield Parish Young Voices

The Dronfield Parish Young Voices is a community choir, open to all children in Years 3-7. We meet on Mondays evenings in Dronfield Civic Hall. This choir started in January 2019 and, prior to COVID, 50+ children from 12 schools were regularly attending. Please click on this link to a leaflet for  further details.

The group is led by Debbie Castles and Rob Aldread who are both qualified musicians and  experienced in working with children.

In June 2021, we were able to reconvene sessions back in the Civic Hall. Below are some pictures and videos of the group from some of the sessions. As you can see, the children are having a lot of fun!

During the pandemic, we adapted and learned some IT skills to help keep the group together. Below are some of the videos that we made to help celebrate the achievements of the children.

On 15th March 2020 the Young Voices were part of an amazing community event called Lift Your Voices together with the Ladies Voices and the award-winning US singer / songwriter Jenn Bostic. Below are some pictures and videos.

Thank You to Chris Parker Photography for the great pictures in the first gallery.
