About Rise Up - Celebrating 10 Years of London Youth Choirs
London Youth Choirs invite you to the Royal Albert Hall for a spectacular 10th birthday showcase featuring all 10 LYC choirs and 1,000 guest singers from schools across London, raising their voices together.
Since LYC’s foundation in 2012, we’ve championed musical excellence and social change for London, creating community through choir.
Every year we’re bringing together more young Londoners from every borough and background, inspiring voices and minds, nurturing togetherness and understanding, breaking down barriers to access, and pushing the boundaries of what choir can be and who it is for.
So now it’s time to RISE UP and celebrate with an all-singing playlist! Prepare to hear choir in all its colours – classical, pop, gospel, musical theatre, hip-hop – plus box-fresh music written for the occasion by London’s Amy Bryce and Brenda Rattray.
We’ll also welcome special birthday guest appearances from BRIT nominee Camilla Kerslake, percussion sensations O Duo – and a surprise star to be revealed on the night. Everything’s set for a party to remember – come and join us!
