What is TYC?
The TYC focuses on singing high level music, leadership and singing in North Texas and abroad.
Texas Youth Chorale Touring choir is made up of 7th and 8th grade singers. This choir meets every Monday for 2 hours and will tour internationally every other year. Each singer will have a chance to go on one International Tour.
Texas Youth Chorale Non Touring choir is made up of 5th and 6th grade singers. This choir will meet every Tuesday for an hour and 15 minutes, and will sing on the same formal concerts as TYC Touring. They will also perform the National Anthem at the NTCC concert as well as local sporting events. This choir will not travel but will attend the Texas International Choral Festival as part of their annual program.
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.
