Sing. Learn. Play

The Amer­i­can Youth Cho­rus is thrilled to announce a new sum­mer pro­gram for the sum­mer of 2019! The AYC SUMMER MUSIC CAMP will expand your child’s hori­zons musi­cal­ly and artis­ti­cal­ly. Dur­ing each ses­sion, a fan­tas­tic staff of choral con­duc­tors and music pro­fes­sion­als will lead campers through an explo­ration of many musi­cal gen­res. From Han­del to Hamil­ton, and Bach to Broad­way, get ready for a sum­mer full of SINGING, LEARNING, and PLAYING! In addi­tion to singing, chil­dren will craft, dance, play games, and explore music his­to­ry and oth­er musi­cian­ship top­ics! All of these activ­i­ties cul­mi­nate in a Fri­day evening per­for­mance at the end of each ses­sion — open to the pub­lic. Don’t wait — sign your child up today!
