Rivers Youth Chorus is for students who have a passion for singing and are interested in developing their voices in an environment that fosters the love of ensemble singing! Through classical voice training we focus on expanding the vocal range and developing solid vocal technique through the production of a safe and healthy vocal tone. Using sophisticated repertoire that best develops the singing voice, we work together to create artistic performances.
With classical vocal training singers develop the technique to be able to sing all styles of music well. In addition to developing your voice, we focus on musicianship skills including music note reading and score study (understanding all the parts in a song and how they fit together). Our singers develop a greater degree of musical independence through part-singing. We also offer opportunities for solo and small group singing, as well as audition preparations for District Festival auditions.
Who should join?
RYC is for students in Grade 4 or higher, with some experience singing in a school chorus or outside group.
