The Texas Youth Chorale, a select choir of auditioned 6th, 7th and 8th grade youth. 

 

The TYC focuses on singing high level music, leadership and singing in North Texas in Texas and abroad.  In 2015 the TYC traveled to Ireland, in 2018 to Australia and in 2020 the TYC will tour as an independent choir to Vienna, Salsburg and Budapest.

 

Why We Lead!

 

The TYC Sr. Leaders are responsible for a small group that they mentor throughout the year.  These leaders have two meetings a month before choir rehearsal, to discuss issues, concerns and goals.  They are being trained to be responsible for their group in rehearsal and during tours.

 

Why We Sing!

We sing because it makes us happy and it forms our inner character through beautiful sounds and emotions.  My life has become happier and more joyful since I started and it is my way of getting away and enjoying myself.  When I am going through tough times in my life, I can always count on music to go right, even when it seems like nothing else is.  There are bonds in choir that cannot be created in a laboratory.   The love in the family is pure and it cannot be torn apart by the hardest force in the world.  Music cannot be seen but it is felt by the heart and singing is a gift that will forever be cherished in my heart because of the compassion and light it brings into my life every day.
