Meet NYCA singer Anish Nair (VIC)

Tell us about your musical background… I've been singing with the Australian Boys Choir since I was 8 years old, with a bit of piano and brass thrown in as I got older. Singing is definitely my main thing now.

How many NYCA seasons have you participated in? 2 - 2016 & 2017.

Why are you coming back to NYCA? There's no choir like it! Just to be around such amazing musicians and people for an intense week of gorgeous music and fun and a couple of concerts...what more could you want

Favourite NYCA memory? Destroying [guest conductor and NYCA patron] David Hill and everyone else at table tennis in 2016.

What makes NYCA different? The standard & quality of singers. Not only are they fantastic musicians, they all somehow also seem to be great people.

What do you do when you’re not singing with NYCA? I'm finishing up a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering, and singing with a lot of choirs.

What I’m most looking forward to most about the 2018 season is…
Singing some terrific music with a terrific choir and terrific people.

What’s coming up for you next? Graduating and seeing if my degree was worth it :-)

Anish returns to perform with the National Youth Choir of Australia this coming season under Noel Ancell OAM.

NYCA 2018 Season Finale: Saturday 7 July 2018 at 7.30pm at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Carlton, Victoria.
