Youth Choir and Vocal Ensemble

The Youth Choir is designed for students who love to sing! This program is non-auditioned, although performers may audition for solos, and open to students in grades 3 through 12.

Our Youth Vocal Ensemble is an audition-only vocal performance group who performs in the community! This group learns a variety of vocal repertoire and performs for community partners, charities, and at events. Their purpose is to share the gift of music with our community! Vocal performers in 6th-12th grade are invited to audition.

The Youth Choir and Vocal Ensemble rehearse on a Spring and Fall semester schedule with a Youth Choir concert at the culmination of each semester in which the Vocal Ensemble is also featured.

Fall registration for the Youth Choir is open until Wednesday, September 5.  Auditions for the Vocal Ensemble are still being scheduled; email youth@cfcarts.com to indicate interest.

The Youth Choir concert for Fall 2018 is “Someday: Songs for a Better Tomorrow”
This inaugural concert for the CFCArts Youth Choir will inspire, uplift, and move our audiences as our choir sings a mix of traditional choral pieces, popular songs, and songs from musicals. This concert will encompass themes of hope, love, humanity, and more!

For information on how to purchase tickets and see the concert, visit our event page!

The Youth Choir is non-auditioned, but the Vocal Ensemble is by audition only. Auditions for the Vocal Ensemble will be held on Saturday, August 11 in the evening (see Auditions below for more information); email youth@cfcarts.com to register.  Auditions are mandatory for all Vocal Ensemble performers, but are not necessary to participate in the Youth Choir.
