New students are still welcome to join the Vermont Youth Chorus and Chorale! All students in grades 6-12 are invited to join. No audition is necessary. Chorus and Chorale is a great opportunity to develop both the voice and aural skills while having fun and making new friends. Chorus and Chorale give performances at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, the Elley-Long Music Center and presents community outreach events in schools and various locations throughout northern Vermont.
The Vermont Youth Chorus, conducted by Caleb Pillsbury, performs masterpieces of the choral repertoire and provides students an extracurricular community choral opportunity complementary to their school vocal programs. Throughout the season, students will receive private lessons and participate in sectionals with master vocal coaches from our region. Students entering grades 8-12 are eligible to participate in the Vermont Youth Chorus and 2017 Tour of England. Chorus rehearsals take place Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 pm starting Tuesday, September 13th.
The Vermont Youth Chorale, conducted by Heather Schoppmann, provides a strong foundation for vocal development and choral musicianship. Along with rehearsing music for performances, students work on sight reading and musicianship, and receive individual instruction from master vocal coaches. Students entering grades 6 & 7 are eligible to participate in the Vermont Youth Chorale. Chorale rehearsals take place Tuesday evenings from 4:30 to 6:00 pm.
