Our youth members brought a great deal of energy, enthusiasm and quality to our recent Newcastle convention.
Overall, there were nine quartets and two choruses contesting in both the youth and open events.
In addition to contests, youth joined the Combined Youth Chorus that performed at our Welcome Dinner and at the Youth Concert. No doubt this was the best combined chorus to date. Thanks to Jonathan Bligh, Jono Albertini and Lionel Pierson. Forefront also held a separate workshop with the chorus.
Youth members also had the opportunity of working with David Holst a member of the Swedish quartet Trocadero, the 2015 international collegiate contest winners. 
Finally, the Youth Concert attracted a large crowd of delegates on the Friday morning. It was a great celebration.
