Vivace Youth Chorus of San José welcomes both beginning and advanced singers.
We offer developmentally appropriate instruction for youth from 4 – 18 years.
All singers wishing to join a chorus above the Preparatory level receive an individual assessment with one of our choral directors. No preparation is needed for this relaxed and friendly session. However singers interested in auditioning for the Teen Ensemble are encouraged to bring a prepared song. Please contact the office to make an appointment.
To gain the full benefit of participating in a sequential learning experience, choristers are encouraged to commit to an entire year (September – June). However, singers may also join at the start of the second semester, or at the discretion of the artistic director. Scholarships and family discounts exist to keep the program accessible to families of all means. We look forward to having you join our Vivace Youth Chorus community.
