The Young Singers
The Young Singers is a choral ensemble with a long history of musical artistry in performance. Singers from ages 8 to 18 are welcome, including unchanged male voices. We focus on developing healthy vocal production through the performance of quality choral literature. Learning through making music is both powerful and enjoyable.
