STEEL CITY CHORISTERS

Steel City Choristers is a charity dedicated to providing high quality music education for children and young people. We are committed to making choral music more inclusive and accessible because we believe in the power of music to change lives.

Our exciting and innovative choir of children and adults is rooted in the English choral tradition. We offer our choristers a free first-class musical education and serve a wide range of communities in and around Sheffield through a diverse programme of choral concerts, services and projects. We offer schools high quality singing workshops linked to the Model Music Curriculum.

“Absolutely beautiful!”
Professor Brian Cox

“The choir sounded so well blended and balanced and the singing throughout had such effective dynamics and musical shape.”
Malcolm Archer, former Director of Music of St Paul’s and Wells Cathedrals and Patron of Steel City Choristers

Our choir brings boys and girls aged 6-18 together with experienced adult singers.

We sing a repertoire that draws on the long tradition of English choral music which has proved its artistic merit over many centuries. Yet we are forward-looking and committed to developing new and innovative ways of taking high quality choral music out to a diverse range of communities. We want more people to benefit from the peace, joy and wellbeing choral singing can bring.

We would love to hear from you, or see you at one of our events.

We offer high quality singing workshops to schools and community groups and equip the with free resources to continue to help children develop a strong foundation of musical skills.
