Programs: teaching singers in grades 2-12 to perform the highest caliber
of distinguished youth choral music from the
body of classical, traditional, and modern
compositions from around the world. Our
mission is to inspire the highest level of artistic choral performance while bringing together youth of the greater Richmond area in a joyful appreciation of their ethnic, religious, and cultural diversity. We are committed to making our choral education experience available to qualified singers regardless of their economic situations.
Now in their 17th season, City Singers Youth Choirs consist of four performing vocal groups: City Singers Advanced Choir, Young Women’s Choir, and Young Men’s Choir, all for 6th-12th graders, and Neighborhood Singers for 2nd through 5th graders. City Singers Youth Choirs have been bringing Richmond area youth together through song since 1996.
Ten years ago I had a daughter who wanted to sing. She wanted to sing much more often than the one day each week she got to at our public school. I went looking for a quality program that was inclusive and would take the time to give her a complete, well-grounded choral education. I found those things and more with City Singers. She was with the choir for 9 years before she graduated and went on to accept a music scholarship to college. I doubt that she could have achieved as much as she has without the support, training, education and opportunities she found through City Singers. Three years ago, I agreed to serve on the board of directors. I love it that our directors are always challenging themselves and their students to come up with new ways to expand their creativity and talent.
