Welcome to the alumni page for singers who have ever sung with the Cincinnati Youth Choir, Cincinnati Children’s Choir, or the Children’s Choir of Greater Cincinnati any time between 1993-present.
We want to get back in touch with as many alumni as possible! Please take a moment to fill out this form and let us know what you’re up to. You can also tell us what kinds of alumni events you’re interested in and if you’d like to volunteer to help build tomorrow’s leaders one voice at a time!

Can’t make all of the rehearsals? We still want you. I’ll send you the music and do my best to hook you up with recordings. I’ll have a new Google sign in to indicate your conflicts so I can plan ahead. But you know, the more we can be together, the more we become one sound and your artistry as an ensemble shines!
Please understand that running the alumni choir does come with costs to CYC. It is not just purchasing music but staffing a pianist, help with marketing and administration who are people on the staff that we need to compensate for their time, purchasing music, and more.
Like the resident choirs, it costs about $300/semester per person to run a program like this. I know some of you have careers that enable that amount while others are still building their lives, careers, families, and future. Rather than requiring $300 per person, and knowing we offered the program to you for merely $50 each in previous years, I opted to simply be honest. If you are able to make a donation to CYC in the amount of $300 each semester, that would be so deeply welcomed. If you are only able to do the $50, you will not be questioned and it will be confidential. If you are able to do more and help cover a colleague in need, we and they would welcome that support.
Payments can be made by Venmo, @Cincinnati_Youth_Choir, or online at: https://www.wesharegiving.org/App/Form/c2896d65-9edb-47d3-a52b-0829f82286b7
CYC (CCC) has always been a family. We have each other’s backs and we make incredible music together. It is most important that we sing together. We need it. Our world needs it, especially as society still is struggling during this endemic time.
