The Youth Choir will serve the Triangle community by providing high quality, free performances, complementing school music programs, and encouraging and advocating the arts, music, and music education.

Auditions will be held each fall, with specific dates announced once we are able to start rehearsals.

The tuition helps cover the costs of hiring professional musicians to come and work with the students, purchasing and copying music, administrative work, as well as marketing materials such as the printing of programs, posters, flyers, etc. Tuition can be paid online by credit card OR by check made out to North Carolina Master Chorale.
