National Choirs

Singing opportunities at the highest level for young people across Scotland

NYCOS National Choirs provide prestigious singing opportunities for Scotland’s young singers. Membership for all NYCOS National Choirs is granted by annual audition and is open to singers who are born, resident or studying in Scotland or of Scottish descent. The basis of the choirs’ activities stem from a residential course where time is split between individual vocal coaching, musicianship sessions and sectional and full rehearsals.
