Welcome back, singers!

What a great start to our new season! Eager, young singers assembling for the first time, returning choristers greeting their friends after summer break, and families learning about our exciting new season at Workshop Day. Hearing the children lift up their beautiful voices after only one short rehearsal really capped off an amazing and inspirational day. This is the 2016-17 Ann Arbor Youth Chorale marching into their 30th season with with incredible energy and talent. The legacy lives on!
