Providing young people with an enriching, artistic experience
At YCNS, children experience the joy that comes with singing diverse and challenging repertoire alongside other committed young singers. They learn valuable skills in music literacy and vocal training, cultivate new friendships in a nurturing environment, and gain confidence through performance. Singers engage with the community, and enjoy social outings.
Alegría is an incredible chorus. My daughter looks forward to rehearsals all week. Not only does she love being there, but she has learned an immense amount about music. Additionally, Alegría has helped my daughter feel more confident performing in front of a crowd.
