In VYC Junior singers will find a place to belong — a space to explore and create, develop their musical talents, and build lasting friendships.
For singers who
“My kids are their best selves when they sing with VYC.”
“VYC is such a welcoming community. I always feel like I belong.”
VYC Junior performs three times a year with all of the VYC choirs, as well as in community and outreach performances in the lower mainland. VYC Junior singers work on four-part SATB repertoire, building healthy vocal technique and music literacy skills in a supportive and welcoming community. VYC Junior singers are proud to act as mentors in our VYC Tiny and VYC Kids programs. VYC JUNIOR is conducted by Luke McAndless-Davis, and accompanied by Caitlin Hayes. At each VYC Junior rehearsal, there are mentor singers from our older choirs who assist with sectionals and vocal modelling, and lead small group rehearsals.
All of our choirs overlap in age, and it is essential for each young artist’s development that they are placed in the choir level that is right for them! All singers are asked to participate in a placement interview, where the director will determine which choir is the best fit, based on their age, musical experience, and social maturity. Find out what to expect at your interview.
