MUSYCA to Offer New Choral Groups in 2018-2019
MUSYCA will offer two new choral ensembles in 2018-2019 school year: Chamber Singers (ages 16-21) and Young Men's Chorus (ages 14-21).
Young Men's Chorus
"The Orpheus Ensemble"
Ages 14-21 By Audition
The Young Men’s Chorus provides advanced vocal training and performance opportunities for the high school age students, and is designed for changed male voices. The stylistically and culturally varied repertoire is carefully selected for this age group. This touring ensemble combines with the Harmony Choir to learn and perform choral literature for mixed voices. In addition to its regular Monday night rehearsal, the students attend a combined practice approximately once every three weeks on a pre-scheduled basis. Extra pre-concert rehearsals are required.
Ages 16-21 By Invitation
MUSYCA Chamber Choir is the advanced touring ensemble, the pinnacle of the Musical Youth of California experience. This a cappella vocal group provides the advanced training and performance opportunities for the members of the Harmony Ensemble and the Young Men's Chorus during their junior and senior years of high school, as well as for college-age students. The singers in this ensemble are committed to achieving the highest level of musicianship and artistic expression through study and performance of choral literature for mixed voices.
