The NYCGB Fellowship Programme

Programme Principal Supporters: ABRSM, Dunard Fund

"The NYCGB Fellowship Programme is vital in enabling the most talented and motivated young singers to fulfil their potential and develop into artists capable of entering the music profession at the highest level" - Nicholas Sears, Head of Vocal Studies, Royal College of Music

Launched in 2015, the NYCGB Fellowship Programme is a major new initiative by the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain which aims to create the most highly skilled and multi-talented choral singers in the UK.

Each year, eight singers aged 22-25 selected following an intensive three round audition process will benefit from a comprehensive 50-day professional training programme designed to develop outstanding skills in performance, education and leadership.

Fellowship holders are supported by individual bursary awards of £4,000 plus expenses, with the possibility of additional fees for engagements throughout the year.
