Each year, the National Youth Choir of Australia (NYCA) brings together highly skilled singers aged 18 to 26 from all round the country for an intensive season of rehearsals and concerts. In 2018 we met in Geelong, Victoria, for nine days under the leadership of Artistic Director, Noel Ancell OAM.
Auditions are held each year in November.
