Welcome to National Youth Choirs of Great Britain (NYCGB). Here’s who we are, and what we do.
We run five auditioned choirs for more than 700 talented members from around the UK aged 9-25. All members get to take part in inspirational residential courses and outstanding concerts and performances. Boys’, Girls’ and Training Choir members are invited to attend up to two residential courses per year around the UK. National Youth Choir members attend three compulsory, and one optional, project per year.
We run training programmes for emerging young professionals – the NYCGB Fellowship Programme and the NYCGB Young Composer Scheme – which help to create the next generation of choral leaders, educators and creators.
We are a national champion for choral singing. We visit schools and educational settings around the UK, all year round. We lead lively and engaging singing workshops for students of all abilities, and we assist teachers and music education networks with their development through support and partnership.
We are a registered charity. We run fundraising schemes and activities to ensure that no young person is prevented from taking part in NYCGB through financial hardship. We passionately believe that choral singing is for everybody.
