The mission of Nairobi Chamber Chorus (NCC) is to enable young Kenyans to participate in a high quality musical forum from which they can build their careers or expand their realm of knowledge and interest in the arts.
Since its inception, over 70 young people have participated and many are now leading musicians in Kenya, performing and teaching music across the country and beyond.
