Interested in auditioning for the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain? Are you a music teacher, singing teacher or professional who’s interested to know what we can offer your students? Come along and see what we do! Being part of one of our choirs can be a life-changing experience.

Who are Open Events for?

Our Open Events are timed to coincide with our residential courses to give you an idea of what it's really like on an NYCGB course. If you're interested in auditioning for a place in the National Youth Boys' Choir, the National Youth Girls' Choir or the National Youth Training Choir then this event is for you! This Open Event coincides with a National Youth Girls' Choir course.

Places are free but must be booked in advance.


What happens on the day?

You'll be welcomed to the course and given your own musical session as a group (no preparation required) before getting an exclusive tour of what's happening on the course. Everyone you meet will be welcoming and friendly and we'll be on hand to answer any questions you have.

It's up to you to make your way to the Open Event, and under 18's must bring an accompanying adult along with them. We'll make sure you get refreshments on arrival. Please make your own arrangements for lunch.
