our story

proud to serve the best music

Founded in October 2005 by Ken Wakia, 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.

The chorus also offers a cultural exchange platform on which visiting musicians can interact with upcoming Kenyan musicians. Their vision is a strong, well-trained musical community which can use its music to promote peace and cross-cultural understanding through quality performance of choral music. Members are drawn from the various universities and institutions around Nairobi. It is a purely voluntary group and members volunteer their time and resources to meet and make music.
