NYCOS National Boys Choir

£12 adult; £5 under 26s

NYCOS National Boys Choir takes to the stage on 11 April to thrill audiences with its rich and wonderful sound, performing a varied and exciting repertoire.

After searching the land, the most talented young male singers from across Scotland were chosen to form this year’s ensemble. The boys take part in an intensive six-day residential course at Loretto School in Musselburgh, where they receive vocal coaching and musicianship training from highly qualified music staff. The wide-ranging concert repertoire is learned and rehearsed extensively in search of the perfect tone quality and musical character that makes this choir’s performance so thrilling to hear live.
