The Mission of the Youth Chorale of Central Minnesota is to prepare select young singers for performances of the highest caliber for the widest possible audience. It supports its mission by presenting concerts, recordings, commissioning and performing new choral works, and by working collaboratively with the community at large to promote singing, specifically with school music programs and other music organizations.
The Youth Chorale of Central Minnesota consists of students (ages 10-18) from around Central Minnesota. High school singers in Youth Chorale rehearse on Sunday evenings on the campus of St. John's University in Collegeville, Minn. Our Cantabile elementary and middle school ensembles rehearse at Sauk Rapids-Rice Middle School on Monday evenings. Coming from area school programs, the St. John's Boys' Choir, and Cantabile, singers in YCCM provide a level of artistic merit that delights arts patrons in Central Minnesota.
