Cabrillo Youth Chorus: Beginning - Intermediate

ID : 7093   
« back to classes page
Under the direction of Cheryl Anderson, the Cabrillo Youth Chorus provides children ages 8 to 18 with an exciting musical experience, which includes solo and choral singing, musicianship, sight reading, ear training, and lots of fun!
 
When children sing great literature with beautiful texts, the ideas remain with them for the rest of their lives. Enabling wonderful young singers to perform with professional musicians in excellent concert venues makes the magic of the musical experience come alive. World class composers and conductors spend time with our young singers expanding their minds and exciting their imaginations.
 
The Cabrillo Youth Chorus has performed with Santa Cruz County Symphony, Cabrillo Symphonic Chorus, Cantiamo Cabrillo, Ensemble Monterey Chamber Orchestra, Cabrillo Music Festival, and the South Valley Symphony. They have toured throughout the West Coast and sung in Carnegie Hall; some CYC singers have toured Eastern Europe, Russia, and Cuba with Cabrillo adult choirs. Composers have written works specifically for Cabrillo Youth Chorus. Since its inception, over 1,000 young singers have been through the program. Many graduates of CYC have continued to incorporate music into their college educations, and we are proud to count any number of music majors and professional musicians in our ranks.
 
Music is chosen to fit each child’s skill level and includes established classical works, art songs, songs from the American heritage, and arrangements of folk songs from around the world in an astounding variety of different languages.
 
No previous musical experience is necessary, but any previous experience is valued and welcomed! Let your child explore the challenging, rewarding, passionate world of excellent music! Students are organized into four different choirs based on age and experience.
 
Younger beginning and beginning-intermediate singers rehearse on Tuesdays. Older intermediate and advanced singers rehearse on Wednesdays. All rehearsals are held weekly from 4 to 5:30 on the Cabrillo campus. If you aren’t sure which choir to register for, choose the one you think would be the most appropriate. We can decide after auditions which choir will be the best fit. 

Placement Auditions: Tuesday, January 16 & Wednesday, January 17, 2018 from 3:30 to 5:30.
 
Rehearsals start January 23rd.

All singers must also purchase the CYC polo shirt for informal concerts. Girls must also purchase the CYC dress and jewelry. These purchases are made by registering for the Polo Shirt and/or Dress classes listed below:

Notice

Please read:  Before bringing your child to camp, please read through this list. Following these steps will help us assure that your child has tons of fun while at camp, and help us keep all of our campers safe! Always send your child with a snack and a drink. Food = mood, and we want campers to be at their best! Be sure you have notified us of any behavioral or medical conditions we need to be aware of. Campers will need to be signed out every day by the individuals who have been approved by parent or legal guardian to pick them up, and are required to show a photo ID each day. Alternative transportation arrangements can be made for parents who wish to approve campers to ride their bike, take the bus, or walk home from camp, by completing the Transportation Form found HERE. This form must be completed and submitted no fewer than 5 business days prior to camp start. Please check the Summer Youth Program Parking Map, found HERE and Policy before bringing your camper on the first day. In order to protect the privacy and security of all minors on our campus, photographs by parents and family members in class are not permitted. Instructors and Extension staff often take photos and may share them with campers’ families via email once camp has concluded. Campers’ name tags will be removed for these photographs to respect and protect privacy. Please contact the Extension office directly if you do not want your child to be included in any photographs taken by our staff. Cell phones or hand held games may not be used during camps. Please let Extension know if there is anything we can do to be sure your camper is safe and has fun. We can be reached at 831-479-6331
