Congratulations to Upper Sixth student, Yasmin Al-Zuhairi, who has been selected for the National Youth Choir of Great Britain (NYCGB)!

Yasmin has been singing in choirs such as the Liverpool Philharmonic Youth Choir for a couple of years now. 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 is extremely tough with a huge amount of applicants.

Yasmin commented : “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 yrs. 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.”

Well done to Yasmin on such a fantastic achievement, we wish her the very best of luck.
