Young Men's Chorus

Young Men's Chorus

The Academy Young Men's Chorus provides an opportunity for changed-voice male singers in middle and high school to share the power and sheer joy of singing with other young men. The chorus features classic, spiritual, and world music celebrating the great repertoire of the male choral tradition. Fueled by camaraderie, the chorus stretches vocal flexibility, expands range, and fires up passion for music in a new way. The chorus performs in December and March.
