The UK’s leading choir for outstanding singers aged 18-25 returns to the festival with a programme spanning centuries of choral works, from beautiful Renaissance polyphony to groundbreaking music of the twentieth century. Drawing inspiration from NYCGB’s 2021 theme of cultural identity, the concert marks the anniversaries of Desprez, Praetorius and Sweelinck, and showcases works by Joanna Marsh and Kaija Saariaho. The concert culminates in a spellbinding new commission and world premiere by British-Iranian turntable artist and experimental composer Shiva Feshareki.

 

Seating in our venues will be laid out in line with the UK Government’s COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the festival. At present we are selling to full venue seating plans, in line with the proposed lifting of restrictions on the 19 July. If restrictions are not lifted, we will be reverting back to socially distanced seating, and we may have to refund tickets for later bookers if capacities remain restricted.
