The Crimson Youth Choir (CYC) provides choral singing opportunities for primary and secondary students within the IUP Community Music School.
It is currently divided into two groups—the Crimson Children's Choir (CCC) and Voce. The CCC is generally for younger and less experienced singers, and Voce is a select audition-only ensemble comprised of middle and high school students.
Both ensembles function and learn music separately, but also combine to perform as one larger choir.
The rehearsal schedule for the fall 2018 semester is new!
Voce will rehearse from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. and will work on their more select repertoire. High school age students with Friday night commitments will be excused as needed, but most members will stay to also work with the CCC, as determined by
the director. In addition Voce member will participate in two to three workshops (dates TBD) where they will arrange their own a capella songs and work on ensemble techniques.
The CCC will rehearse from 5:15 to 6:00 p.m. as they work on proper singing, breathing, reading music, matching pitch, diction, etc. As determined by the director, they may rehearse by themselves, or be combined with Voce members.
Depending on enrollment, there may also be an opportunity for Voce to work as a jazz choir with guest clinician.
