Background & Brief

London Youth Choirs is a youth arts organisation, that enriches the cultural life of young people through the pursuit of musical excellence and social change.

Children and young adults living or educated in London receive singing tuition and performance opportunities, which educate and inspire, build confidence, and develop skills in teamwork and leadership, all whilst championing inclusivity, empathy and understanding.

The LYC branding looks tired. It doesn’t appeal to young people. We celebrate our 10th Anniversary in 2020 and need a total refresh that represents the vibrant personality of our singing and our members.

When our team at LYC first saw the new branding we loved it! The symbolic ‘fountain of youth’ Y represents perfectly our members and mission”

Nina Camilleri Executive Director

Our Idea

When researching the world of chorale music and choirs, it was dominated by musical notes, treble clefs and other clichéd icons. Our challenge was to create a symbol that represented the young members in a unique way. 

In mythology the Fountain of Youth is a spring that supposedly restores the youth of anyone who drinks or bathes in its waters. We liked the reference to youth and the restorative powers of the story. It was the perfect metaphor for the performances and powers of choral singing, and the inspiring work of London Youth Choirs.


LYC looks forward to confidently celebrating its 10th Anniversary in 2020, and expanding into the four corners of London, helping more young people to access a brilliant musical education closer to their homes.
