Brooklyn Youth Chorus

Regularly featured as performers at National Sawdust, the Grammy-winning Brooklyn Youth Chorus is a collective of young singers and vocal ensembles re-envisioning choral music performance through artistic innovation, collaboration, and their distinctively beautiful sound. Named WQXR New York’s 2016-17 Artists-in-Residence, the Chorus draws students from across the five boroughs and combines intensive voice and musicianship training with exceptional performance experiences, encompassing over 600 students in multi-level training divisions and advanced performing ensembles.

The Chorus’s custom-designed training method prepares singers with the skills and technique necessary to perform music from a variety of styles — classical to contemporary, traditional to commercial. As a bold commissioner and producer of new music, the Chorus has introduced over 100 original works and world premieres by contemporary composers into the repertoire, including several evening-length productions.
