The National Youth Choir of Scotland (NYCoS) today performed a flash-mob choir at Edinburgh Airport before jetting off to Chicago to celebrate their 20th anniversary with a tour of the USA.
The performance, in Edinburgh Airport’s Plaza, which featured 77 male and female singers, was a double birthday celebration as it also marked Edinburgh Airport’s ongoing centenary celebrations.
Christopher Bell, NYCoS Artistic Director, said:
“We’re celebrating our 20th anniversary in style. Invitations from the world’s leading festivals and conductors to perform internationally cannot be bought; they are based on high quality and reputation. NYCoS is privileged and honoured to be regarded on such a professional level.
“It is a joy to share a double birthday celebration with Edinburgh Airport on the first day of so many people’s summer holidays.”
Gordon Dewar, Edinburgh Airport’s Chief Executive, said:
“The talented young men and women of NYCoS are a credit to the country and I am delighted that Edinburgh Airport is the point where they depart Scotland for their US tour.
“It is has also been a real treat for everyone here – including our unsuspecting passengers – to be sung to on our 100th birthday by this internationally acclaimed choir.”.
