Young Women's Chorale

Jonathan Richter, Director

The Young Women's Chorale is a select intermediate ensemble comprised of sopranos and altos in grades 7-10. This ensemble performs a wide variety of challenging choral repertoire for women's voices in up to 4 parts. Additionally, the instruction in YWC focuses on healthy vocal production and the improvement of essential musicianship skills. Entrance to the Young Women's Chorale is by audition, and selected students may have the option to dual-enroll in either Children's Chorus or Youth Chorale (entrance also by audition).
