The Rogue Valley Youth Choruses present two major performances each year at area high school theaters. The four choruses also perform at the Rogue Valley Manor.
An annual ‘Spring Sing’ event is hosted by the Rogue Valley Youth Choruses each May for elementary students. Busses transport students to the Medford School District Education Center where the Discovery Chorus and Children’s Chorus perform a short program of choral music for them. This wonderful experience provides a concert experience for young students and is a free field trip for approximately 1400 students.
The Cantare Chorus often performs around the valley and makes a bi-annual trip to Portland for a choral festival.
Each summer, the Youth Ensemble tours a destination in the Northwest, such as Seattle, Victoria, B.C., San Francisco, Portland, Los Angeles. In addition, the Youth Ensemble provides entertainment for various charitable, philanthropic, and social events throughout the Medford area.
