Youth chamber chorus helps young musicians reach their potential
The Northeast Ohio Youth Chamber Chorus (NEOYCC) provides choral music performance opportunities for a talented array of students in grades 6-12. NEOYCC enables members to grow vocally in an amazing variety of musical styles: Broadway, spirituals, classics and more.
If you read music, that's great! If you don't, you will be learning music theory as we proceed with weekly practices. All you need is a love and passion for music, singing, performance and competition!
The chorus rehearses on Thursdays, from 6-7 p.m., at Advent Episcopal Church, 3760 Dover Center Road, Westlake. Registration forms are available at adventwestlake.org/neoycc-application.pdf or call 440-871-6685. No auditions are necessary; just show up to a rehearsal with the completed registration form and $25 fee.
Members can realize their innate artistic potential and share experiences that enrich their lives while benefiting their families and communities. Choral music performance is fun, challenging, and will be an impressive addition to high school and college applications! Depending on numbers, duets, trios and quartets are a possibility.
Under the direction of Dr. Darlene M. Khoury, NEOYCC offers an excellent opportunity for professional-level choral education and performance. NEOYCC will compete with choirs throughout the Ohio Music Education Association’s District 6 and State adjudications as well as perform at community events. To thank Advent for their sponsorship, hospitality and use for rehearsals, NEOYCC sings at a service once a month.
