Chorus selection was completed on November 10th. The ensemble consisted of 102 performers with an average age of 22.8 representing 4 Countries and 30 States/Providences. We wanted the No Borders Youth Chorus to truly have “No Borders,” so in addition to evaluating vocal quality, we considered age, location, and experience to be sure that we have a chorus of ALL ages from EVERYWHERE around the world with VARYING levels of experience.
