What is the Young Singers' Foundation?
The Young Singers Foundation has been the official charity of Sweet Adelines International since 1992. The Foundation enriches the lives of young people through educational programmes in vocal music, awarding grants to school-based music programmes and funding after-school and community vocal music activities for young people. The Foundation also administers the Bev Sellers Memorial Scholarship Fund for vocal music students of any age.
The official newsletter of the Young Singers' Foundation, is published semi-annually, and distributed electronically - by email or from the Foundation's website. The newsletter will be sent free to anyone who requests it.
