Olympia Youth Chorus at a Glance

In Olympia Youth Chorus, we strive for excellence in developing young singers; contributing to their growth in musicianship, confidence, and performance skills. Our directors are all Washington State Certificated Music Educators who share a passion for inspiring and encouraging young singers. We are committed to building a supportive musical environment in which singers develop skills, make new friends, and share performances in a variety of concert venues. Our mission is to nurture the appreciation of the choral arts and the shared experience of creating fine choral music with children of all backgrounds.

Activities

Kids Helping Kids

With this annual project, our goal is to create a partnership between our singers and other youth in our community who may be experiencing hardship or need. Each December, we donate the proceeds from our holiday concert to a designated non-profit organization in our community that supports youth or families in need. Past recipients of our Kids Helping Kids Initiatives have included: Homeless Teen Backpacks, Family Education and Support Center, Rosie's Place, Little Red Schoolhouse, Camp HOPE America - Washington, and City Gates Ministries.

This season, our Kids Helping Kids partner organization was GRuB, Garden Raised Bounty.

Retreats and Community Performances

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to create community within our organization while also enriching our community arts landscape. Outside of weekly rehearsals, our singers participate in retreats, school performance tours, community caroling, and other concert and touring activities.
We have partnered in performance with Olympia Symphony Orchestra, Student Orchestras of Greater Olympia (SOGO), Capital City Chorale, and Ballet Northwest. Performances have also included Olympia Choral Society Concerts, Providence St Peter Christmas in the Forest, The Governor's Mansion, Mary Bridge Hospital Festival of Trees, Argosy Christmas Ships, PICCFEST, World Strides On Stage Festivals, Fort Worden Children's Chorus Festival, Tacoma Rainiers Baseball and Sounders S2 game performances, and national and international tours with our advanced singers. In June 2020, our advanced high school singers were invited to sing in the National Youth Choir Festival at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Unfortunately, due to Covid, that performance was canceled.
