Musical Beginnings is for boys and girls ages 3 to 5. Once a week the children gather for a 45-minute exploration of music FUN-damentals that include singing, listening, moving to music and playing simple instruments.
First Voices is our pre-choir experience for boys and girls in Kindergarten through 1st grade. In an encouraging setting, children focus on basic FUN-damental music skills related to understanding, expressing and performing music together.
Training Choir Level
TrebleMakers is our youngest performing ensemble. Boys and girls in at least 2nd grade with a love for music come together to develop their skills for singing beautiful unison choral music.
Choristers is open to boys and girls in at least 4th grade. These singers further develop their skills from unison into two-part singing.
Brio is open to boys and girls in at least 5th grade. These singers expand their musical skills.
Advanced Performing Ensemble Level
Concert Choir is our oldest performing ensemble, forming the core of our identity in guest appearances, collaborations, festivals and travel. Concert Choir is open to boys and girls in at least 6th grade with good sightreading skills. It requires greater responsiblity and commitment.
VoiceMale is our most advanced choir for boys. Singers are selected through a competitive audition process. Young men are chosen based on vocal skill, blend, music reading ability, social maturity and serious commitment to excellence.
Signature is our crème de la crème. Membership is the most competitive of all YVC Ensembles. As such, this group is YVC’s “signature,” representing our organization in performances beyond the scope of Concert Choir.
