2015 Season Confirmed

The 2015 NYCA season will be held in Melbourne from the 4th to the 12th of July 2015. We are delighted to announce that Noel Ancell OAM has been appointed as the Artistic Director for 2015-2017 and will also direct the 2015 season. Featured works for the 2015 season are J S Bach’s mighty motet “Singet den Hern” and Britten’s “A Boy was Born”.

The 2015 season will be a fully residential season at Trinity College, Melbourne. We are very grateful to the College for its partnership with NYCA which enables us to offer the whole season for $550 per person (including accommodation and full board for 8 nights).

Information on the audition process will be released in January.
