Youth Chorale

Youth Chorale

Erica Washburn, conductor

The NEC Youth Chorale is a highly celebrated mixed chorus for advanced singers in grades 9-12.

This ensemble performs in NEC's Jordan Hall and other regional venues. In recent years the choir has shared the stage with the NEC Youth Philharmonic Orchestra and Youth Symphony, as well as the Cambridge Symphony Orchestra. Comprised of students from the greater Boston area and beyond, Youth Chorale offers singers the opportunity to experience and perform masterworks and octavo selections of the choral repertoire at an exceptionally high level. Recent concert programs have featured works such as Brahms' Liebeslieder Waltzes, Haydn’s Missa in Augustiis (Lord Nelson Mass), Mozart’s Missa Brevis in F, K.192, and Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms.
