The Greensboro Youth Chorus consists of talented young singers in grades 3–12 from throughout the Piedmont Triad and annually performs at concerts, festivals, community events and competitions. Students with all types and levels of musical background are encouraged to audition. Weekly rehearsals are held in the Parish Hall at St. Francis Episcopal Church on Lawndale Drive in Greensboro.
Founded by Ann Doyle in 1988, The Greensboro Youth Chorus has offered children opportunities that enrich their lives through music education and foster inner qualities, such as personal and group responsibility, independence, discipline, commitment and self-esteem. An outstanding music faculty empowers young musicians through a challenging, creative, and diverse curriculum of the finest sacred and secular repertoire written for young voices. Students learn music reading skills, sight-singing skills, vocal training, choral techniques, as well as experience a variety of choral repertoire from various time periods and styles.
The Greensboro Youth Chorus has had many prestigious and exciting performance experiences including state, national and international competitions and festivals, as well as collaborations with outstanding conductors, composers and instrumentalists. They have performed for the Southern Division Convention of the American Choral Directors Association and have toured British Columbia, Germany, France, Scotland and England. In 1998, the GYC released their first CD: Celebrating 10 Years of Choral Excellence.
GYC is a not-for-profit organization supported by generous individuals and organizations in the Greensboro community.
