The Dronfield Parish

Young Voices




On Monday 28th September we restarted sessions in the Civic Hall and it went very well. We have split the group into two smaller sessions to ensure we can maintain social distancing. We have a few spaces available, please get in touch with Rob if you're interested.

At the end of October all the children had great fun dressing up and we used IT to make a Spooky Medley! Here it is:

From March until September the group was not able to meet due to COVID-19, however a number of the children worked together with Rob to make three AMAZING virtual choir videos:















The Dronfield Parish Young Voices is a community choir, open to all children in Years 3-7. We meet on on Mondays evenings in Dronfield Civic Hall.

  This choir started in January 2019 and, prior to lockdown 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.

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.
