Founded in 2013 by Carrie Tennant, the Vancouver Youth Choir (VYC) provides a space for promising young singers aged 5 to 24 to develop their artistry in a creative and supportive community. The organization includes over 250 members in six separate ensembles, and has quickly emerged as one of the most highly-regarded youth choirs in Canada. VYC has gained international attention for their adventurous “Grimes to Monteverdi” programming, their commitment to performing and promoting music from underrepresented communities, and their outside-the-box approach to shows, where they employ unique venues, multimedia, movement, and staging.
VYC is seeking to fill 2 or more conducting positions, with the possibility of one person conducting more than a single ensemble. Conductors will be on contract.
Rehearsal days and times can be found by clicking the links above.
BC Provincial Health Office orders permitting, all of these groups will be convening for rehearsals in September.
