Viva remains a small chamber choir, although it has now increased numbers a little in order to be strong enough to sing works written for double choir. ​In the early years, Viva gave few concerts while its repertoire was built ...

As the choir has grown in ambition, it has begun to perform with success a variety of more difficult works for which many plaudits have been received.

'In 1979 the City of Stoke-on-Trent Amateur Operatic Society set up a youth section, which soon became known as "Stoke Youth". In 2006, following the decision to wind up the "Adult" Operatic Society, a small group of committed & determined individuals took the view that they wished to continue to support the talented young performers of "Stoke Youth" and take the personal risk of backing the establishment of a new volunteer run registered charity Stoke Youth Musical Theatre Company. Stoke Youth continues to stage challenging performances & training to meet the aim of "developing young people".'
