We believe music is in every child and for every child; and so, GYC provides a place for every young person who loves to sing and is committed to personal and vocal growth for the betterment of our community of singers. GYC offers 5 ensembles that serve singers in grades K5-12. Singers rehearse weekly in downtown Greenville at First Presbyterian Church and perform in regular winter and spring concerts. Additional concert opportunities are available to select singers and include performances at the Peace Center alongside the International Ballet, the Greenville Symphony Orchestra, as well as with partner choral organizations like Rivertree Singers. GYC singers have the opportunity to travel each summer on performance trips to Carnegie Hall in New York City, to Chicago and Washington D.C.; additionally, each summer, GYC holds its “Summer on Stage” music camp and music video project for singers ages 5-18.
