About NYCGB and the National Youth Choir
NYCGB passionately believes that choral singing is for everyone and encourages and supports young people who are currently underrepresented in choral music, including young people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, disabled people and those from lower-income families to audition to be part of its choirs.
National Youth Choir members come together to take part in a unique year-round training and performance programme. They work with and are inspired by world-class musicians and coaches and are part of major national and international events, concerts and festivals, performing at high profile venues including the Royal Albert Hall. They gain extensive experience of developing and premiering new choral music in live performance and via digital media, sing alongside the most gifted young singers in the UK, develop their skills to the highest level, and make life-long friends. Members grow in confidence, fulfil their singing potential and gain real-world life and professional skills such as team-working, communication, leadership and creativity.
