Quite simply one of the world’s most exceptional youth choruses, the National Youth Choir of Scotland brings together the nation’s outstanding young singers aged 16 to 25. It is internationally renowned for the detail, power and passion of its vivid music making, and has a long history of acclaimed performances. Under co-founder and award-winning conductor Christopher Bell, NYCoS launches our spectacular six-concert celebration of some of the world’s finest youth ensembles with an impassioned programme – from the lush harmonies of one of Vaughan Williams’s most visionary works to the raw emotional impact of Eric Whitacre’s Biblical lament, by way of Tippett’s moving prayers for peace. The Choir also brings to life the witty settings of strange and exotic poems from the London Underground by renowned Scottish composer Thea Musgrave.
