Surrey Youth Chorus
[ Contact Info]
The SYC was created in 1998 as Surrey Children's Choir singers grew and voices changed! This popular four-part chorus is devoted to music of all styles including classical, folk, jazz, Broadway & popular.
The dynamic and talented singers range in age from approximately 14-25 and include young women 16 years and up who are in grade eleven or higher and are outstanding musicians. Boys, by audition, will have changed voices. The SYC joins the Surrey Children's Choir annually for the Christmas and Spring Orchestra concerts and the choreographed Season Finale Spectacular at Bell Center in May.
The SYC competes each year in the Kiwanis Festival and have one annual choir retreat, often to the Harrison Hot Springs Resort where they are famous for their late night serenading in the hot pools!
In 2009, the Youth Chorus travelled to the UK, performing at venues such as St. Pauls and Salisbury Cathedrals, and competing at the International Choral Eisteddfod held in Llangollen, Wales, one of the biggest choral festivals in the world, where they placed 8th in the Mixed Voices category.
