The brilliant voices of the National Youth Choir – ‘a young choir on blazing form’ (The Arts Desk) – sing songs which celebrate the abundant creativity of those living with mental health conditions. From Britten’s inventive setting of Christopher Smart’s asylum poem Jubilate Agno to new music being given its first performances tonight, this is a programme that goes to the heart – and mind – of who the NYC are.
