What People say about the Choir
"Olivia absolutely loved every minute of it! She really enjoyed the singing; the lessons; the encouragement and being able to sing with other children who also love to sing. She made new friends and has since been in touch with them. She spoke highly of the music teachers and the staff running the course. Thank you so much for giving her the opportunity to join your choir and for running such an excellent course."
"I just wanted to drop a note to say many thanks for such a well organised and fun course last week. Jazzy had a great time and was full of happy stories. The singing presented to us on the Saturday was most impressive and Jazzy is already looking forward to the Summer course. A big thank you also to your pastoral care team. Jazzy was so complimentary about all of them."
"My daughter has had an amazing time: she made some lovely new friends, improved her sight-reading, increased the speed she picks up new pieces and gained so much confidence in her singing ability."
"We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thank you to all of the NCCGB team and the house staff at Shrewsbury school. Tara had an absolutely wonderful experience at her first course with the Yellow choir. We would like to extend our gratitude to Ms Rachel Smith, Patrick, the pianist and her vocal teacher for all their professional training and encouragement. Furthermore, Tara spoke very highly of ALL of the pastoral carers who took wonderful care of her and all the children. We are extremely appreciative for all their care and kindness. She has also made some lovely new friends."
"It was my daughter’s first experience of being away with the National Children’s Choir and she had an absolute ball. She learned so much from the teachers and found all the helpers and other children really friendly and kind. Matilda hasn’t stopped talking about all the new friends she has made and is really looking forward to the summer course."

"Just a quick note to express my thanks and appreciation for a wonderful Easter course. Thanks to the whole NCCGB team – you guys do a great job I cannot even begin to say how wonderful it was to hear the kids sing the songs they learnt during the course. I also wanted to thank you all for the support around the cabaret. I packed Lily’s music but I think she forgot where I put it. Anyway, somehow, NCCGB had a copy… a small detail that makes a world of difference! thank you. Please convey my sincere thanks and appreciation to her accompanist."
