NYCGB Training Choir perform at Truro Cathedral



National Youth Training Choir and Crioch Quartet - ‘Looking West’

Saturday 15th August, 6.00 pm, Truro Cathedral

This summer, the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain are creating the biggest youth choral festival in the UK:NYCGB Summerfest. Throughout July and August, more than 500 of the nation's best young singers will be coming together as part of NYCGB ensembles to give performances of a huge range of choral music at theatres, concert halls and cathedrals in seven counties.  In creating Summerfest, we've been inspired by the festival ethos of creativity, openness and having a good time. You can expect world premieres of new music by leading composers, collaborations with a wide range of artists from a variety of disciplines, and - of course - the great vibe that comes naturally with passionate music-making by talented young performers. Tickets start at just £5 for under 25s, 

West meets West: a musical journey from Cornwall to the New World - 15th August

The National Youth Training Choir celebrates the musical heritage of western lands near and far in collaboration with the award-winning Crioch Quartet folk group. Featuring brand new arrangements based on Cornish and West Country heritage, the programme also travels across the sea to take in music from the New World cathedrals, early American shape-note music, African-American spirituals and the classic sound of US barbershop. Conducted by Robert Isaacs and Chris Hann.

Location:Truro Cathedral
