Winston-Salem Youth Chorus Invites Students in Grades Two Through Four to Join Spring Forward Chorus

The Winston-Salem Youth Chorus invites any student in grades two through four who loves to sing to join its Spring Forward chorus. This five-week singing group is an introductory choral program which includes learning solfege (do, re, me, etc.), singing in rounds, group singing, choral training and culminates with performing with the Winston-Salem Youth Chorus on stage at the Spring Choral Concert held at Ardmore Baptist Church.

No audition is required, just of love of singing. Rehearsals are held on Tuesdays from 5:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Burkhead United Methodist Church in Winston-Salem beginning March 1. Be a part of this exciting ensemble experience. For more information and to register your child, please visit Winston-Salem Youth Chorus or call 703-0001. The deadline for registration is Friday, Feb 26.

The Winston-Salem Youth Chorus, a non-profit arts organization founded in 1993, has impacted the lives of hundreds of children and youth through music education and performance experiences in its mission to engage and develop youth from diverse backgrounds and enrich their lives by inspiring excellence in choral music.  Sonja Sepulveda, who is the Director of Choral Activities at Salem, is the new Artistic Director for the WSYC and brings her national credibility to the organization. The chorus now has about 100 members in four ensembles, ranging from grades 3 through 12 and representing more than 40 schools in Forsyth and surrounding counties.

Members of the WSYC learn vocal technique, theory, singing in other languages, discipline, confidence and teamwork while performing beautiful choral arrangements. The chorus also often collaborates with the UNCSA, The WS Symphony, Piedmont Wind Ensemble, Piedmont Chamber singers and other groups in the region.
