RCS Youth Chorus–Ten Years and Counting!
RCS Youth Chorus began its tenth year of regaling the Staten Island community with the voices of our children and teens, fourth through twelfth grades in September 2012. The auditions start with a simple song for Ms. Johanning, RCSYC's music director, and becomes an entree to a whole new world of singing the masterpieces of the choral repertory written for young voices. Staten Island students learn how to sight read, train their voices in a classical, healthy style, and perform the often challenging and always beautiful music of the ages in many different languages. They perform with the adult chorus in the fall and spring, and at their own concert in June.
We are now starting to see RCSYC on the bios of former choristers in community productions and in the local newspaper. Some will be citing RCSYC on college applications as a regular, after-school commitment made as early as fourth or fifth grade.
Auditions for Spring, 2013 will be held on Wednesdays, January 2 and 9 at St. Alban's Church, 76 St. Alban's Place, SI, NY 10312. No preparation is necessary. Call (718) 448-3656 for an appointment.
