Testimonials:

Auditioning (for WSYC) was one of the best things I have ever done. Singing in that group was a large part of my childhood, providing me with not only the fundamentals of music and performing but also some of the best friends and experiences I have ever had… I am sure that my participation in the Winston-Salem Youth Chorus helped lead me to where I am today.

Miriam Schildkret

2002 WSYC alumna, now graduated from Ithaca College in Vocal Performance

WSYC embraced not only my love for music, but  allowed me to be myself.  As I matured  through the years that I was a member of the Youth Chorus, I learned so  much about music, my voice, friendships and myself.  It was a turning point in my life that has  made me into the person I am today, and for that, I am extremely grateful.

I just bought a copy of your fine CD with WSYC (Hear the Angels Sing).  The title is certainly apt as the choir does  indeed sound angelic!  Congratulations to  you and all the WSYC members for splendid, gorgeous, and sumptuous sound!

I want to extend my deepest gratitude to  each of you for the first-rate World Premiere that you gave my The Gift of Music…in every way  you made the piece your own.  The  performance was solid technically, had excellent diction and was expressively  sung.  You truly brought the piece to  life in a magnificent way!  Barbara  Beattie deserves huge accolades for the superb training that she gives  all of you in the Winston-Salem Youth Chorus on a weekly basis.  With her brilliant leadership, David  Pulliam’s sensitive accompanying….and solid parental support all contribute to  make your ensemble a treasured resource of our community.
