Voices of California/Northern California Youth Chorus

Open the Doors 2

Voices of California's 2016 youth chorus "Open the Doors"

The Voices of California sponsors an annual youth chorus who's primary purpose is to compete/ appear in the Barbershop Harmony Society's Youth Chorus Festival, held each year during the Society's Midwinter Convention.  


If you are a young man, age 25 or under;  maybe you are involved in your high school or college vocal music program, and intrigued by the idea of a short-term, enriching and exciting adventure that will leave you a better singer.  Consider getting involved in the Northern California Youth Chorus. The chorus comes together for a few months (usually about 5 rehearsals) and then ventures off to a weekend adventure that's truly unforgettable.


Each year the Youth Chorus Festival (as a part of Midwinter) is in a different location.  Recent years sites have included Las Vegas, Orlando and New Orleans.  The Festival attracts youth choruses from around the world who come together for lots of great performances and cameraderie.  VoCal has sent youth choruses to several prior festivals including the previous year's chorus "Open The Doors" to the Festival held in Reno, Nevada in January of 2016.


VoCal is putting together a youth chorus in fall of this year for the upcoming Youth Chorus Festival to be held in Costa Mesa (Orange County, CA) in January of 2018. For more detailed information about the Northern California Youth Chorus, go to  http://youthchorus.voicesofcalifornia.net/
