Ben Parry, NYCGB artistic director and principal conductor, said: ‘Despite the regrettable cancellation of our spring season courses and concerts we are delighted to be able to go ahead with our National Youth Choir auditions in May. We are currently devising new ways of working with our choir members to deliver a high-quality digital experience until the current situation is resolved and we can meet once again in person. We hope that as many talented young singers as possible, from all backgrounds, will book an audition, which they’ll be able to do from the safety of their own home.’
