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.
If you missed the live webcast on Thursday night (maybe you were on stage!) of the AAYC Concert Choir singing Carmina Burana with the Detroit Symphony and the UMS Choral Union, don’t despair! You can go to dso.org/live at any time the week of February 2nd and watch it on demand. Just wait a few seconds . . . and voila! It looks and sounds amazing.
You can also find photos on our Facebook page of the Concert Choir at the DSO dress rehearsal and singing in the concerts. Just search The Ann Arbor Youth Chorale on Facebook.

This month, Maestro Leonard Slatkin will lead the Detroit Symphony, UMS Choral Union, AAYC Concert Choir, and vocal soloists in German composer Carl Orff’s masterpiece, Carmina Burana. “Carmina” is a cantata written in the 1930s and based on 24 poems, often irreverent and satirical, from a medieval collection. The work is an audience favorite, so tickets are going fast.
Performances will be at Detroit’s Orchestra Hall on the following dates:
Thursday, January 30 at 7:30 pm
Friday, January 31 at 8:00 pm
Saturday, February 1 at 8:00 pm
Sunday, February 2 at 3:00 pm
For more information and ticket sales, please visit the Detroit Symphony’s website at: http://dso.org/.
