We all enjoyed Tim Brown's leadership in 2016.

A record number of NCC folks enjoyed the 2015 symposium let by David Hill!

These happy singers – and two others – attended a week-long choral symposium at Camp Ogontz in 2013, led by David Hill of the Bach Choir in London, and Paula Rockwell of Nova Scotia.

Ten NCC singers attended the David Hill choral symposium at Camp Ogontz in August 2012.

Anne Arnold came to the North Country with the Harlow Chorus on their USA tour in 1980. When NCC returned the visit to England in 1982, she hosted Claire and Bob Mead, and they became fast friends. In 2012 she finally decided to find out first-hand what Claire and Bob had been raving about all those years. She loved it!

Anne returned to Ogontz in 2013, sadly for the last time. Anne died two months after returning home to London.
