May 19-21 2017 at Mount Allison University, Marjorie Young Bell
Conservatory of Music Sackville, NB
Clinician: Marta McCarthy
APPLICATION DEADLINE February 22, 2017
The New Brunswick Youth Choir is a three-day auditioned choral
residency for New Brunswick singers between the ages of 16 and 24
from all across New Brunswick and from both of New Brunswick’s
official linguistic communities. It is an intensive weekend of
training and education and a unique opportunity for singers from
across NB to pursue excellence in choral music under the direction of
a renowned conductor. It is an opportunity for like-minded students
to learn and collaborate with one another, and for students to meet
and connect with their peers.
Former New Brunswick Youth Choir members have included published
composers, solo performers in classical, jazz and pop idioms,
instrumentalists and accompanists, future conductors and music
educators and others planning a career in music. There have been just
as many who, though pursuing careers in other areas, have made music
part of their lives – those who sing for the sheer joy of singing.
Veuillez noter que cet événement aura lieu en anglais.
New Brunswick singers aged 16-24 are eligible to audition for the
NBYC. Candidates by no means need to be voice students, but they
should have some singing experience and it is strongly recommended
that they be able to read music.
