About Youth Ensemble
The Youth Ensemble began as an extension to the RVYC treble choruses, and as an enriching, extra-curricular chorus experience for advanced high school singers in the area. Singers in grades 9-12 rehearse and perform high quality SATB literature that is diverse, challenging, and beautiful. The ensemble tours each summer and sings for a variety of business, charitable, and private events throughout the year.
