The GNCC started in Fall of 2015 and grew out of a need for more after school music ensemble experiences in the Greater Newburyport area. Gina McKeown and Allison Balentine founded the organization after starting an after school chorus at the local upper elementary school. The GNCC, since it's inception, has worked with over 250 students by providing them an opportunity to sing together and meet as musicians. These students originate from Newburyport and the surrounding communities, including Amesbury, Newbury, West Newbury and more! The GNCC hopes to continue growing and have enjoyed seeing our Juniors, our youngest singers to date, grow exponentially this year! The Juniors are a younger age ensemble for 2nd and 3rd grade singers.
