BC Youth Choir

The BC Youth Choir is unique across Canada, as we are the only provincial youth choir organized entirely by its youth participants!

The BCYC is held on a weekend each May as an integral part of the BC Choral Federation's annual Chorfest conference. Participants come from all over the province, and enjoy a fun-filled time making great music! Singers are selected by audition tape, and the choir is open to all singers aged 17 to 25.
