We look forward to an Australia where choral music is a powerful and positive cultural force.

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

NYCA opened my eyes to the possibility of a career in ensemble singing - which eventually led me to the Song Company.
