The North Shore Youth Choir is a project-based choir. In 2017 there were two projects, a tour to Paihia and Warkworth in May and the annual NSYM concert at the Bruce Mason Centre in June. In previous years the choir has toured to Whangarei, Thames and Whitianga. Commitment is required for the first two school terms only. If other projects become available for the second half of the year, singers will be given the opportunity to be involved. Rehearsals are held on Mondays, 7pm – 8.30pm at Westlake Girls High School.
Applications are still being taken for NSYC. To apply, please complete an audition form or contact Vanessa Kay on 440 9075
A little bit about us…
In 2009, North Shore Voices – a collection of choirs for young people on the North Shore – was formed. The Youth Choir is for young people aged 14 – 24 who want to sing in a relaxed, sociable atmosphere. Vanessa Kay the director of the Youth Choir has been the musical director of the North Shore Children’s Choir since 2001. NSCC was formed to fill a gap in the community for young children who want to learn to sing in a choir. In 2009 she expanded the North Shore Voices organisation into 3 choirs. Songsters, Children’s Choir, and the Youth Choir. From 2010 – 2013 the Youth Choir has grown in numbers, and is providing singers across the region with an opportunity to sing in a group outside of school and university.
