The Virginia Consort Youth Chorale is a choir for serious young musicians in Charlottesville, VA.
The mission of The Virginia Consort is to enrich and perhaps even change lives with choral music. The Virginia Consort is committed to excellence in choral music. Our performances will be places where all present—performers and audience—share a common delight in music and are renewed by it. We aim to bring music alive for those who perform and who listen, enriching our lives through a shared experience of the vast world of choral music.
At the very core of our existence is a commitment to introduce young people to the fun and joy of singing together, to expose them to a rich and diverse repertoire of choral music and to instill in them the discipline necessary to produce a fine performance. We hope to encourage young musicians to continue singing throughout their lives. The Virginia Consort Youth Chorale was formed in 1992 by The Virginia Consort, a choral ensemble of adult singers under the direction of Judith Gary.
The Youth Chorale began with 20 singers but has since grown to include over 100 young people in four choirs:
The High School Chorus, a mixed chorus made up of the most experienced young men and women through high school age, the Treble Chorus for experienced treble-voiced singers through 12th grade, the Prelude Choir for children in 4th grade through 7th grade and the First Step Choir, our newest choir, for children from Kindergarten through 3rd grade who love to sing and desire more singing experience.
Members of each of these choruses are chosen by audition and are re-auditioned each year. Every one of our concerts includes a segment featuring the talented young people that make up our Youth Chorale.
