 Appalachian Youth Chorale - Tuesdays 4:30 PM

The Appalachian Youth Chorale (AYC) is a community youth choir comprised of third through eighth grade students with unchanged voices. AYC is under the direction of Vanessa Van Valin. The choir will rehearse on Tuesday afternoons from 4:30- 5:30 at Grace Lutheran Church in Boone beginning late-August (Vanessa will inform all registered families of the specific date - please see the AYC facebook page for updated info). There will be approximately twelve rehearsals and two concerts per semester. No auditions are necessary, just a love of singing! Our programs will consist of excellent choral repertoire such as American folk and patriotic songs, spirituals, sacred, world music and show tunes. We will use many different musical techniques and philosophies to help the students grow in their musicianship. Come join the fun!

  • 12 rehearsals and 2 concerts,  $135 per semester
