About

Mission

The mission of YCNS is to provide young people with an enriching, artistic experience through vocal and musicianship training, quality repertoire, and joyful ensemble singing.

Beliefs

  • Choral singing creates a joyful environment of music, friendship, and community.
  • Accomplishments in vocal and musicianship education lead to self-confidence and pride.
  • Sustained engagement with diverse and challenging repertoire cultivates a deeper appreciation for and love of music.
  • Young singers thrive by performing together as committed artists.
  • Instruction in music literacy and vocal training is essential for young singers to reach their artistic potential. 

We have been thrilled with our daughter's experience with Alegría. Lauren teaches all the important techniques of serious singing while also exposing the children to a rich, varied, and global repertoire of music. Our daughter's confidence in her singing has grown considerably.

Approach

We build a foundation for artistic and personal growth by offering:

  • Music literacy instruction, including note reading, vocabulary, and expressive techniques.
  • Age-appropriate vocal training.
  • Varied repertoire.
  • Challenging yet reasonable goals.
  • Performance opportunities.
  • A warm, nurturing atmosphere that fosters friendship and community.

Alegría has afforded and deepened the love of music for my 10 year old daughter who was quite shy. Her enthusiasm and confidence in singing has matured immensely since joining.
