At Raleigh Youth Choir, we believe in the inclusive, communal power of music. Building upon a rich history of more than 55 years, we’re eagerly running toward the next chapter of our organization – the next movement, as we in the music world like to say.
At Raleigh Youth Choir, we offer each young person a unique experience. Our instructors meet every child exactly where they are and provide specialized instruction, all while providing mentorship and encouragement. We are all about the power of “yes” and having a can-do attitude. Every youth has a voice, and those voices are valued. We have six different core ensembles within our choir, along with many other programmatic offerings throughout the year!
Raleigh Youth Choir educates youth in the art and joy of singing through quality instruction and performances. We envision youth from all cultures and backgrounds joining together to experience the power of song.
At Raleigh Youth Choir, each of our ensembles are led by board certified music teachers who are excited to create a welcoming community for all of our young singers. They meet every singer exactly where they are, and provide a unique learning experience for all.
If you have a young singer interested in joining us, we hold placement auditions periodically throughout the year that are open to all! These auditions are very laid back and are designed to help us place each singer where they will most excell given their musical background and abilities.

At RYC, everyone gets a chance to experience joy, friendship, and community through a shared learning of choral singing. I am thrilled that my children have a supportive and welcoming performing community, where they are growing in confidence and ability, and becoming leaders in their schools and community.
