The Ann Arbor Youth Chorale’s mission is to transform young lives and enhance the cultural life of Southeast Michigan through music education, performance of quality choral music, and collaboration at the highest level of artistic expression– all in a safe, inclusive environment.
Congratulations to the members of Concert Choir who were featured performers, under Mrs. Kidd’s direction, in U of M’s recent production of Puccini’s gorgeous opera, La Boheme. You sounded and looked fantastic, with all that movement and activity on stage and, of course, wonderful singing. You seemed to be having the time of your life!
Here’s what an AAYC alum wrote on our Facebook page, “This makes me so happy! I was in La Bohème with AAYC in 2007 and remember the experience so well. It’s great to see that more AAYC kids are having wonderful experiences like this!” Clearly, this was an unforgettable experience for her, as I hope it will be for all of you.
Here’s my favorite photo – curtain calls at the end of Act II. You’ll find more pics on AAYC’s Facebook page.
We’re delighted to announce that the Ann Arbor Youth Chorale has received another generous grant from the Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor Foundation. The grant supports our tuition and concert tour scholarship program for the 2019-20 season. Ours was chosen from among numerous applications – an honor for which we are extremely grateful. Thank you, Kiwanis Club!
