Take a listen to ‘Deep River’ performed by CitySound Voices:

Courage Youth Choir

C.Y.C (Courage Youth Choir) is a youth Glee Choir that rehearses on Friday afternoons at the Wiltshire Music Centre. With conductor, Felicity Courage, the group of 12-18 years olds learn to perform every style of music, whilst putting their own twist on harmonies. C.Y.C sing in four part harmony and there are some incredible voices in the group.

This is a new musical venture for young and local singers and C.Y.C. are looking for new members and performing opportunities to increase their experience.
