Working with the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain

We work with the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain (NYCGB) to support leadership development for young professional singers through their Fellowship Programme. We also support their work to encourage young people, school groups, their parents and local music leaders to get involved in singing. This includes Ready Steady Singing Days, Pop-up Public Performances and Open Days in regions across the UK.
