Are you an experienced choral singer aged 18 to 25? The Scratch Youth Messiah invites you to come and lend support to 1,300 young people in a performance of Messiah on 2 December 2018 with NYCGB supremo Ben Parry. Tenors and basses will be especially welcome.

As ‘Musical Mentors’, you need to be familiar with Messiah so that your strong voices can give confidence to the younger singers (some of them only 7 years old). If you’d like to sing, and support this award-winning event for young choirs, email us today at Tell us your mobile number, what voice-part you sing and what kind of choral experience you’ve had.

You will be needed at the Royal Albert Hall on 2 December for a rehearsal at 11.00am, and a performance at 2.00pm (ends 4.00pm). Bring your own score! We have to allocate you a seat, so you must contact us to say you are coming – if you just turn up on the day we may not have a seat for you.

If you’ve already signed up as a Mentor, these are the details you will need:
Provisional timetable for the day (a final timetable will be available in early November)
List of which numbers will be sung
Notes for marking up your score  (essential, as there are cuts you won’t know about unless you read this)

And this concert is raising money for WaterAid.  Why not set up a JustGiving page and see if you can help raise funds for them?  Here’s a link to show you how to set it up, then just email details of your page to friends and family and ask for their support  – even the smallest donations count.  In 2017 this concert raised almost £8,500 to bring clean water to communities in Ethiopia.
