Come celebrate extraordinary young vocal artists when the GRAMMY® Award winning National Children’s Chorus (NCC) presents a mesmerizing musical collection inspired by our shared human need for harmony and wellness. Led from the podium by Maestro Luke McEndarfer, Dr. Pamela Blackstone, Dr. Allan Laiño, Joshua Gonzalez, Kaitlin Simonson, and Meghan Stoll, over 500 of America’s finest young singers, ages 10-17,  present a captivating afternoon of music, mindfulness, and exhilaration celebrating youth and mental health. The program includes works by Ola Gjeilo, Eric Whitacre, Gabriel Fauré, and W.A. Mozart, as well as a world premiere by NCC student composer Samuel Siskind.

NCC knows how kids thrive. They have an exceptional way of encouraging young people to perform at their highest level while guiding them to connection, balance and wellness through voice. Each year, NCC’s young choristers who carry a love of singing in their hearts train thousands of miles apart in eight chapter cities and then come together to perform on the world’s top stages.

Instructors work weekly with students to develop their vocal skills from the most basic concepts through the college level. Students develop tone quality, breath support, and artistic expression while working together as an ensemble. Every choir member receives the same training and learns the same repertoire and breath marks so that any member may participate in any concert.

The results are remarkable. Last December, NCC students performed on The Today Show. Previously, NCC students performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic & Gustavo Dudamel on the 2022 GRAMMY-winning album (best choral performance) Mahler: Symphony No. 8. Their latest album, Illumine, a collection of holiday songs from around the world, came in at #3 on the Billboard Classical charts.
