Broadland Youth Choir, for seven to 18-year-olds, has opportunities for people to join both its junior and senior sections.

The musical group, which has been running since 1992, sings at the annual EDP Festival of Carols at St Andrew's Hall each December and at many other events throughout the year.

Musical director Carole Tims said they were now looking for new members.

She said: 'Singing in a choir is fun. It gives you a sense of community and teamwork besides the fact that it encourages you to sing and use your voice, your body's own natural expression.

This Saturday evening the choir is performing with Classical Reflection at Trimingham Church from 7pm and there are also plans for the choir to sing with Blake in the future, having previously performed with the vocal group on Cromer Pier.

Members of the choir have also performed on the Norwich Theatre Royal stage, alongside the professional casts of shows including Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Jesus Christ Superstar.

Mrs Tims said the choir gave young people the chance to perform different types of music.

'It's very varied. We do a lot of classical stuff but we do have moments where we break out, go on stage and let our hair down,' she said.

Broadland Youth Choir's rehearsals take place on Fridays at the Jubilee Hall in Salhouse.
