National Choral School ElectivesWe are planning another group of fascinating electives for NCS 2020. You can read the project descriptions here.
In the questions below, choose two that are interesting to you - don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone! Certain electives are only appropriate for some age groups. Feel free to follow your interests, however chorister’s suitability for each elective will be determined in part by age. We will allocate you to one of your preferences where possible; but cannot always guarantee this.
Note that Junior Gondwana choristers will be placed in a dedicated Music Theatre stream.
