Liverpool Philharmonic Children's Choir and Melody Makers

Liverpool Philharmonic Children’s Choir & Melody Makers offer an excellent introduction to choral singing for children aged 7 – 12 from in and around Liverpool.

 The choirs sing a wide range of enjoyable and exciting music with performance opportunities throughout the year at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall and other venues, including performing at our annual family Christmas concerts with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

Melody Makers is for children is school years 3 and 4

Children’s Choir is for children in school years 5, 6 and 7

The choirs receive outstanding choral training under the direction of Alison White at weekly rehearsals and benefit from general musicianship and vocal technique sessions with experienced tutors using Kodaly and other methods.

Both choirs rehearse on a Monday evening in central Liverpool during term time. Children do not need to read music or audition to be a part of these two amazing choirs. As long as your child loves singing and wants to learn with other children in an interactive and inclusive way, they can join!

Annual fees are £66 to be part of Liverpool Philharmonic Children’s Choir and Melody Makers which can be paid in a lump sum or in instalments across the year. Members will also require a Children’s Choir/Melody Makers polo shirt for performances which costs £11. Means tested bursaries are available to cover fees and concert dress.

You can add your child to the waiting list by completing the form below and the Youth Company team will contact you as soon as a place becomes available (this is normally to start in September or January). Due to the popularity of the Children's Choir there is currently a substantial waiting list for new members in years 5, 6 & 7.

Children must be 7 years old before they join the waiting list – if applications are received for children under 7 they will be removed.

Due to the long waiting list if you are unable to accept a place for your child when it is offered they will be removed from the waiting list for this place to be offered to the next child on the list.
