Following the huge success of NYCGB Alumni's Shenandoah Virtual Choir release we have decided to do a Christmas Alumni Virtual Choir project. We would like to take this opportunity to showcase some of our amazing alumni musicians and are thrilled that our very own Louise Clare Marshall has arranged The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire) especially for us.

Behind the scenes work has already begun and will continue as we prepare for rehearsals, submit our videos and wait for those magical technical people to turn it into the sparkly, glitzy Christmassy video.

Sign Up

If you haven't already 'signed up' please register for a place here by Monday 9 November.

*Please note that paying a participation fee is separate to signing up for a place.

We have a top-notch section leader list and they will be taking 2 sectionals on Monday 2 and Monday 9 November. Keep your eyes peeled for specific details of your own sectional. There will also be a full rehearsal during the weekend of Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 November.

The deadline for submitting recordings is Friday 20 November.  

Taking Part – Pay What You Can Afford

We want to actively show that we support and value professional musicians and associated professionals by offering a fee to those involved in the preparation and production of the video.

We are therefore proposing an optional participation fee for the project (suggested amount £10) to cover the costs of the project. It is up to you how much you contribute. We understand that this may not be a good time for some and if you are unable to contribute, you are still very welcome to take part. We would also appreciate larger contributions where you feel able.

Once we've reached our target to pay the freelance staff, all payments above this total will be treated as donations and go towards supporting NYCGB. To encourage as many people as possible to take part all participation fees will be automatically anonymised.

To pay a fee, select 'Book a Place', choose your amount and follow the steps below.

Please note if you are not paying a fee there is no need to register through this website, just make sure you’ve signed up to take part here.

If you would like to donate an amount greater than £100 please contact [email protected]

We would love to have as many Alumni as possible to join us and spread some Christmas cheer!
