‘Established in 1993 to provide an opportunity for girls and boys aged six to eleven to enjoy music making away from a school environment and to perform different styles of singing in a variety of venues. At least a dozen schools are usually represented. The Youth Voices began in 2004 for the 11+ age group. It gives a continuing role for older children and gives extra scope and a wider range of music for us all to enjoy.'

‘A small chamber choir based in Beckenham in the south-east London borough of Bromley ... The SLS tackles a wide-ranging repertoire encompassing sacred and secular music by composers of all periods from the 15th century to the present. It concentrates on works that are either unaccompanied or performed with an organ or small instrumental ensemble. English music is a strong element in our programming, but works by a wide cross-section of continental and non-European composers are also performed. The choir has given well-received performances of baroque works, romantic partsongs, and American music. Programmes are designed to complement, rather than compete with, the activities of larger choral societies.’
