We bring together the UK’s best young voices to sing together on immersive residential courses, which are exciting, unique – and packed with singing! Every young singer deserves the opportunity to participate without worrying about the costs. Help us fund bursaries for 200 young singers in 2024.
Access to music education varies widely across the UK for young people, especially if you are state educated or from a family with a low income. Many miss out on the chance to participate in group singing and to feel all its varied benefits: from confidence to a sense of belonging and learning all the techniques for hitting the right notes. These young people deserve a chance to not only participate, but to excel in amazing musical settings, without worrying about the costs.
The National Youth Choir creates accessible pathways to support young people across the UK to discover their voice through the life-changing experience of singing together. We provide exceptional opportunities for them to realise and reach their potential, not only in singing but in life. Inclusivity is core to our ethos. We provide financial assistance to any young person who needs it so they can truly make the most of their National Youth Choir experience.
