NATIONAL YOUTH CHOIR OF WALES


“NYCW sang their hearts out” Western Mail

“When I was in the choir I got the chance to sing with Bryn Terfel and it’s something I’ll never forget” Katherine Jenkins, soprano

The National Youth Choir of Wales was formed by Tŷ Cerdd (as the Welsh Amateur Music Federation) in 1984, to support both the long-standing choral tradition of Wales and the development needed for that tradition to flourish. On 1st October 2017, responsibility for the management of the Choir and the other five national performing ensembles transferred to the newly established National Youth Arts Wales. Members of the Choir, who are aged between 16 and 22 years, are drawn from all parts of Wales, and auditioned annually. The Choir’s main work is concentrated in a summer residency consisting of training from professional tutors and conductors, followed by a series of concerts.

The National Youth Choir of Wales 2019 residency has finished. All information regarding auditions for National Youth Choir of Wales 2020 will be released shortly on our new website
