CYC is accepting new members for its 2023-24 Season of choral EXCELLENCE!
To join a choir please register your singer through the link below. Singers in grades 1-3 are automatically placed in our Piccolo Coro choir. Singers in grade 4 will automatically be placed in our Vivace choir, and those in grades 5- 12 will be asked to complete a placement hearing where a choir director will ask for a few basic vocal exercises to be completed in order to appropriately place your child into the choir that best fits their current skill set.
