We are thrilled to announce that The National Youth Choir has been selected to perform as part of The 12th World Symposium on Choral Music in New Zealand in 2020 (WSCM2020), next summer.

They are one of twenty-four of the world’s finest choirs, and the only choir from the UK, to have been selected from a record number of applications. The stunning line-up includes world-class choirs and more than 40 distinguished choral practitioners coming together in Auckland in July 2020.

WSCM2020 Artistic Director John Rosser commented:

"From so many fine submissions, we have been able to select not only a wonderfully diverse and exciting programme, but also one of the highest quality."

The symposium will include a range of exciting presentations on such topics as indigenous music and ‘ownership’, diversity and social empowerment, alongside the cornerstone subjects of conducting and vocal technique, articulation, rhythm, intonation, genre exploration, repertoire, movement and programming.
