The Chorus Austin Youth Chorus provides opportunities to inspire the development of life-long lovers of music. Through focused practice, education and creative programming, choristers emerge as confident young adults and inspire audiences in and around the Austin community.

The Chorus Austin Youth Chorus is dedicated to enriching singers’ lives by developing their choral artistry in a disciplined, yet joyful environment. Choristers are challenged to learn more than just notes and rhythms. They also explore the history, context and heart of the music, using music as a lens to discover the world.

The Chorus Austin Youth Chorus is open to 5th through 9th grade students and is now accepting mixed voices. Weekly rehearsals are held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursdays at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, 8134 Mesa Dr., Austin, TX 78759. The youth perform alongside the Chorus Austin Chamber Ensemble and on their own several times a year. Choristers receive training in vocal technique and sight reading and sing in 3- and 4-part harmony through a wide array of repertoire.
