Parramatta Youth Choir: A Musical Haven for Young Talents

Introducing the Parramatta Youth Choir

In collaboration with PAYCE, BROOKS designed and implemented the Parramatta Youth Choir program to provide young people within the Parramatta and Ryde area with a free opportunity to hone their musical talents. In a vibrant, social environment where they can build their confidence, forge new friendships and have fun, this lively and talent-packed ensemble would meet every Wednesday to learn new songs and practise their singing together.

At the heart of the Parramatta Youth Choir is a commitment to cultivating a positive and supportive atmosphere, nurturing individual growth and teamwork. Running over the past five years, the Parramatta Youth Choir has recently soared in popularity in the last 2 years due to its proximity to the Parramatta CBD.

Comprising approximately 65 primary school-aged children from the Parramatta CBD, the choir boasts a diverse repertoire spanning various musical genres. Audiences of all ages are in for a treat, experiencing the delightful and inspiring talents of these young singers.
