NYCOS, Scotland’s youth singing organisation, is seeking to appoint a new Chief Executive to lead the organisation as it approaches its 25th anniversary
During its 22 years, NYCOS has evolved from a single national choir into a multi-faceted organisation that comprises 4 National Choirs, 14 Regional Choirs across Scotland, Mini Music Maker classes and an impressive education portfolio.
Under the inspirational leadership of its Artistic Director and founder Christopher Bell, the flagship National Youth Choir of Scotland now performs regularly with conductors such as Sir John Eliot Gardner, Edward Gardner and Donald Runnicles at the BBC Proms, Edinburgh International Festival, and most recently, Carnegie Hall, New York.
The organisation is riding high artistically and reputationally and is in a great position to consolidate and grow its financial support base in the run up to celebrations of NYCOS’ 25th Anniversary in 2021.
