Columbia Youth Choirs: Choirs

In the CYC system, there is a spot for any child who desires to sing!

We truly believe in the importance of providing a quality vocal education for every child. Multitudes of studies show the positive impact group singing can have on an individual and we want everyone to have the opportunity to be part of CYC regardless of their ability level or zip code.

At CYC, there are no vocal auditions required.  Students need only apply and they will be placed in one of our three choral ensembles.

All rehearsals take place at Missouri United Methodist Church, 204 S. 9th St., downtown Columbia, MO.  Room locations will be announced.
