The East Texas Youth Chorus, open to home-schooled youth from the eighth grade and up, is seeking singers for spring 2011.
“The youth chorus offers home-schooled youth an excellent fine arts component to their academic schedules, and the opportunity to sing great music with friends in a challenging but fun setting that prepares for college singing,” said Jim Taylor, director of the ETYC and KC’s Director of Choral Activities.
Members must pass a simple audition to determine that they can carry a tune—no music reading requirement is necessary. Sight-singing skills are taught in rehearsals.
The ETYC will perform a concert May 1 at Trinity Episcopal Church in Longview.
“On the program will be a performance of Pergolesi’s ‘Magnificat’ with string orchestra, as well as lighter music for the spring season,” Taylor said.
Cost to join the choir is $50. Juniors and seniors can also enroll
