Choral excellence for young Australians.


The National Youth Choir of Australia brings together like-minded singers from all around the country.

Season 2016: Melbourne - July 2-10


NYCA exists to inspire and empower young Australian singers, developing commitment to music and the highest standards of vocal ensemble performance.

We look forward to an Australia where choral music is a powerful and positive cultural force and where professional ensemble singers are acknowledged and respected alongside their instrumental colleagues.


The UK's David Hill leads NYCA in 2016...

“I am delighted to have been asked to direct NYCA in 2016 and to be working with the young choral talent of Australia. It will be an opportunity for me to experience the contemporary choral scene as well as introduce, I hope, some repertoire which is unfamiliar. Most of all, it will allow us all to enjoy, together, the wonders of singing some of the finest music on offer in wonderful surroundings and to the highest standards we can achieve. See you in 2016!”
— David Hill, BBC Singers & The Bach Choir (UK)
