Welcome

Welcome to the National Children’s Choir of Great Britain website!

This has been a very busy summer for the choir, marking  our 20th anniversary.  73 of our singers had the experience of a lifetime, visiting China and singing in Beijing and Shanghai in early August.  They returned to join the summer course in Shrewsbury School, and on 10th August the whole choir, together with a group of alumni, gave an Anniversary Concert in Birmingham Town Hall.  The concert programme included the première of a new work by Cecilia McDowall, Everyday Wonders: the Girl from Aleppo, specially commissioned for the occasion; the piece tells the story of Nujeen Mustafa, a child refugee from Syria, and many other choirs across the world are already planning to perform it in the coming year.

The next event in our calendar is the November auditions.  We are looking for talented singers aged 9 – 19, who would like to be part of a dynamic choir with exciting years ahead.  We hope that you will find our website helpful, but please contact us by emailing info@nccgb.com or ring 07894 021279 if you would like more details.

On our Latest News page you will find details of the NCCGB scholarship, which is open to singers who have been members of the choir for at least two years.  The scholarship auditions will take place on 25th November, so we are looking forward to receiving applications as soon as possible.

We are also inviting applications for NCCGB choral conducting internships.  Details and an application form are available on the People – Working with NCCGB page.
