The Bromley Boy Singers
———————————-

With a reputation for quality vocal production, musical education, and an appetite for fun, The Bromley Boy Singers are one of the UK’s most well established independent boys’ choirs. Our aim is to inspire boys to discover and develop their vocal and musical skills within a friendly and encouraging environment.

Divided across four groups, The Bromley Boy Singers focuses on a well rounded musical education. In addition to vocal technique, boys engage in musical theory & sight-reading, harmony & ensemble work, communication skills, and performance skills. 

The choir continues to perform in prestigious venues across the UK, and Europe, including The Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room, the Royal Albert Hall, the Barbican Centre, St.Martin-in-the-Fields, Notre Dame de Paris, La Madeleine and The Menin Gate. They won the John Langdon Award for Youth Choirs at the Cornwall International Male Choral Festival in 2015, and were finalists in 2017.
