Get inspired on a dazzling tour of musical girl power, sung by the outstanding voices of the National Youth Girls’ Choir.

Every single piece in the concert was written by, for or about women – from beautiful Medieval plainchant to choral comedy by Vikki Stone and arrangements of hits by the Spice Girls and Ariana Grande. There’s also a brand-new work by Kerry Andrew, and guest appearances by singer-songwriters Lulah and Hannah Peel.  

So if your daughter or granddaughter loves to sing, why not bring her along for an inspirational afternoon of music-making?

This concert is kindly supported by The Ambache Charitable Trust: raising the profile of music by women.
