Launched in 2015, the NYCGB Fellowship Programme is a training scheme for aspiring choral musicians which develops solo and ensemble performance technique, teaching and leadership skills, and professional skills and networks. Eight Fellows aged 18-24 are selected annually from open auditions.

This year’s NYCGB Fellowship Octet presents a kaleidoscope of music written or arranged for voices spanning many centuries, continents and musical genres. From sacred and secular music from Renaissance Europe to a cappella arrangements of songs from legendary groups Queen and Simon & Garfunkel, interspersed with folk songs, African chants and choral classics by Brahms, Vaughan Williams and MacMillan, the Fellows will dazzle with their vocal vertuosity and stylish singing.
