VYC JUNIOR is open to singers in grades 7 to 10. Members of VYC JUNIOR build musicianship and long lasting friendships in a joyful and creative environment.
For singers who
VYC JUNIOR performs three times a year with all of the VYC choirs, as well as community and outreach performances in the lower mainland. The choir also participates in an optional overnight BC tour each season, and enjoys connecting and collaborating with other choirs across the province. VYC Junior members are proud to act as mentors in our VYC Tiny program.
VYC JUNIOR is conducted by Carrie Tennant, and accompanied by Caitlin Hayes. At each VYC JUNIOR rehearsal, there are mentor singers from our senior choir who assist with sectionals and vocal modelling, and lead small group rehearsals.
VYC JUNIOR this season is based on a hybrid model of both online “special guest” workshops and in-person, small-group, outdoor rehearsals. Our guest guest artists range from local superstars Dawn Pemberton and Ashleigh Ball, to artists from across the country and around the world. VYC JR singers will work with people from all over the world, with the goal to expand our own world, and to improve our craft. At our in-person rehearsals, VYC JR will work towards a recording session for a video concert in December and May.
Each month, from January to May, VYC JUNIOR will have one online workshop with a special guest, and one small-group, in-person, 50 minute outdoor rehearsal. There are also opportunities for special online projects for singers who are interested.
