The National Children’s Chorus invites members, patrons and guests to join our exhilarating international trips each summer. Don’t miss your chance to take in stunning musical performances by the NCC’s Senior Division students around the world!

An important part of the NCC experience is our students’ exposure to world history, unique cultures and social diversity. With music as a common and unifying bond, members of the National Children’s Chorus travel abroad each year, performing their stellar repertoire and making connections with audiences across the world. International collaborations enable them to meet and sing with children from other countries, while gaining insight and understanding more acutely the world around them.

Attending the NCC summer tour to China was a last-minute decision that my daughter and I made. Little did we know that it was going to be one of the most transformational experiences of our lives. From the performances at the Great Wall of China in Beijing and the Ancient City Wall in Xi’an, to the cultural tours of five Chinese cities and the delicious food we ate—it was the experience of a lifetime!

While the NCC’s excellent music is thus shared and experienced by a wider array of music enthusiasts internationally, our core goals in coordinating NCC travel are twofold. Firstly, the tours serve to solidify and strengthen the relationships that exist already within the chorus, generating memories and forging friendships that will last a lifetime. Secondly, they are designed to cultivate a higher sense of openness and empathy in our students.

Many of the most beautiful and memorable experiences my family have are from the NCC tours. Without NCC, we would not have been to some of the most beautiful venues in the world, and we are so grateful and thankful for these memories.

NCC tours teach the children that all people around the globe (despite our perceived differences) are most importantly human, just like them, and therefore equally worthy of respect, care and love. The results of NCC tours are magical and life-changing for all of us!

Thank you for the most memorable tour we had with the NCC. The students were exposed to so much history, and the education combined with the exceptional music of their gifted voices was truly special.
