National Youth Choirs of Great Britain's 2022 season

National Youth Choirs of Great Britain

This year the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain (NYCGB) return to a full programme of performing with a busy time ahead, with a concert season themed on the Environment alongside courses and community activities. NYCGB has more than 800 members with ages ranging from 9 to 25, whilst through their Learning and Engagement activities they reach a further 3,500 people annually. 

The National Youth Choir will join the Swingles at Woolwich Works (7 April 2022) for a programme that includes the world premiere of their new commission, co-created with choir members, Until It’s Gone – music for our planet, as well as Earth Song by Rachel Portman and Nick Drake, and Water by Anders Edenroth

As part of the PRS Foundation’s New Music Biennial 2022, the National Youth Chamber Choir will be performing Jessica Curry's She Who in Coventry in April and at the Southbank in London in July. And the chamber choir will also be at the London Handel Festival (23 March 2022) with a concert that places the premiere of Anna Clyne's In Thy Beauty alongside Baroque anthems. In October, the choir performs at the North Wales International Music Festival with a concert at St Asaph Cathedral celebrating RVW's 150th anniversary with his music alongside that of Imogen Holst and Grace Williams.

The National Youth Choir and Chamber Choir's Summer residential course is based in Ryedale and associated with this the two groups will be performing at the Ryedale Festival in July.

Learning and Engagement activities include a new partnership with the Royal Northern College of Music's Pathfinder programme, plus a new relationship with Ark Schools. NYCGB continues to develop its ongoing work in Sunderland, supporting a brand new Sunderland Youth Choir, and wider opportunities for young singers in the North East of England as part of our Gillian Dickinson Young Singers programme, as well as expanding NYCGB’s connections and pathways in the North West.
