SWCS and SignuptoSing

Saffron Walden Youth Choir SignuptoSing, has been working under the baton of SWCS conductor Janet Wheeler for a number of successful years now and operating as part of Saffron Walden Choral Society since September 2016.  Last year SignUptoSing took a major role in our performance of Jonathan Dove's fabulous poetic work of childhood 'There was a Child' - a difficlult work, but a challenge the youngsters met brilliantly. As they grow up, we hope that many of the SignuptoSing members will continue singing with SWCS as full youth members. .
This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to learn from experienced choral singers and for SWCS to enhance its brief of musical education in the Saffron Walden area.  But above all -  to enjoy singing together.
