The National Youth Chamber Choir meets throughout the year for highly varied projects across the UK and internationally. Recent highlights have included recording sessions for NYCGB, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio 4, a national touring collaboration with National Youth Jazz Orchestra, and appearances by invitation at the American Choral Directors' Association Conference, the Malta International Choral Festival, and as part of the 10th Anniversary 'Choral at Cadogan' series at Cadogan Hall.

Who is it for?

The Chamber Choir is made up of outstanding senior singers from the National Youth Choir, the current NYCGB Fellowship, and recent alumni of the National Youth Choir.

How do you audition?

During our annual auditions for the National Youth Choir, we also consider every applicant's suitability for NYCC. Outstanding candidates receive an invitation to join NYCC together with their National Youth Choir place offer. 

Young professionals, young role models

As our elite ensemble, the National Youth Chamber Choir represents an important aspirational level for younger members of NYCGB. Many singers in the National Youth Chamber Choir teach and inspire younger members of NYCGB when they work as staff members on National Youth Boys' Choir and National Youth Girls' Choir courses.

Equally, the National Youth Chamber Choir is a springboard to further professional development. Members are often enrolled in further music education or are at the outset of professional singing careers.
