Choir, Photography & Crafts


Volunteer your skills

Sharing your skills and experience not only helps us to make a difference in our community but also gives you an opportunity to meet new people who share your passion – whether you love singing, are a keen photographer or a dab hand with the needle and thread. All this while getting unparalleled behind the scenes access to one of the oldest producing theatres in the country – this is an opportunity like no other.

YTR Choir

A Choir Like No Other

Forget two concerts a year. The YTR Choir is a unique opportunity if you love singing – covering all genres and working with innovative composers, writers and directors.

If you would like to be part of this exciting choir we are now auditioning for new members (first two sessions free).

The Choir is partnered by BANKS MUSIC PUBLICATIONS
