The Ann Arbor Youth Chorale is a non-profit organization whose goal is to enrich the culture and lives of the community by supporting and encouraging young singers to excel in both musical performance and social activities.
Auditions for AAYC are in May and June, but we can take sign-ups any time on this website. Just go to the “AUDITIONS” drop-down menu and register for an easy 10-minute appointment. See below for more information.
Auditions are for new members to either choir, or current Descant Choir members who want to try out for Concert Choir. 2017-18 promises to be a fantastic season! Your friends will love being part of the excitement, so be sure to tell them about Youth Chorale!
AAYC’s 30th Annual Spring Concert – 4:00 pm on May 6th in Ann Arbor’s Bethlehem UCC – promises to be an especially meaningful event, with the choirs performing a new work by composer Andrea Ramsey, entitled “But a Flint Holds Fire.” It’s sung to poetry by Christina Rossetti, with writings by Flint children about the water crisis, narrated by AAYC members.
