The Residential Chorus

The Residential Chorus is for boys and girls in grades 3-5, beginning and experienced singers. The RC does not tour, but they have several local performance opportunities throughout the year, on their own and with the other ensembles. The Residential Chorus rehearses on Thursdays from 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm. Although the musical challenges and expectations are high for this group, they will be less than those for the Touring Chorus and the performance schedule will not be as demanding for this ensemble.

The Touring Chorus

The Touring Chorus is for boys and girls in grades 4-8. The Touring Chorus rehearses on Mondays 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm. The Touring Chorus generally performs more than any other group in the WSYC, and the performance schedule can be demanding depending on the opportunities per year. Members are highly encouraged to participate in local, regional, and international concert tours as applicable, but are not required to do so.

The Young Women’s Ensemble

The Young Women’s Ensemble is for girls in grades 9-12. They rehearse on Thursdays from 7:15 pm – 8:45 pm. The Young Women’s Ensemble performs independently and with other WSYC ensembles, and they also participate in WSYC tours (not required for membership).

The Young Men’s Ensemble

The Young Men’s Ensemble is for boys with changed voices. They rehearse on Thursdays from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm. The Young Men’s Ensemble performs independently and with other WSYC ensembles, and they also participate in WSYC tours (not required for membership).

Fall Forward and Spring Forward

These low cost programs are introductions to choral music and offer children the chance to perform with the main WSYC ensembles in the Winter Celebration Concert or Spring Choral Concert. Each program is generally a five-week session of one 45-minute rehearsal per week. One session is offered in the fall for boys and girls in grades 3-5, and one in the spring for boys and girls in grades 2-4. No audition is required.
