An upper sixth student from Carmel College has been selected for the National Youth Choir of Great Britain (NYCGB)!
Yasmin Al-Zuhairi has been singing in choirs such as the Liverpool Philharmonic Youth Choir for a couple of years now but a few weeks ago, Yasmin auditioned for the National Youth Choir of Great Britain.
As well as being the UK’s leading youth choir, it’s also recognised as one of the best youth choirs in the world! The audition process proved to be extremely tough with a huge amount of applicants.
Yasmin said: “I was shocked when I found out the news but I’m extremely excited to join the choir! The age range of the choir is 18-25 years. Since I’m still 17-years-old, I will be one of the youngest members.
“The majority of the concerts are based in London, at the Royal Albert Hall, which will be an amazing opportunity!
“We will be performing there for the Christmas concerts, BBC Proms, 150th Royal Albert Hall Anniversary and more, which is really exciting.
“I’m really looking forward to starting in September.”
