Join our Youth Choir

The Deer Creek Youth Choir is non-auditioned community choir. We give students with a passion for music and love of singing the opportunity to grow in their musical abilities and leadership skills, as they help to better the public and private school music programs of which they are a part. We also have homeschooled students who participate in our choirs as the musical component of their education program.

The Deer Creek Youth Choir is currently open to singers entering grades 2-9 with unchanged treble voices. No auditions are required.

Rehearsals

Weekly rehearsals for DCYC are held on Thursday evenings at Ebenezer United Methodist Church in Fallston. Fall Season runs from September through December and the Spring Season runs January through May.  

Deer Creek Youth Choir is comprised of two ensembles for singers of varying age and ability: Vivace & Jubilate. These ensembles perform both individually and as a combined choir in performances. Rehearsals are held independently for each group with occasional combined rehearsals.

DCYC Jubilate Choir (2nd-5th grade) members learn music reading skills, solfege & ear training abilities, develop age-appropriate vocal technique and sing in unison and 2-part harmony.

DCYC Vivace Choir (6th-9th grade) members are comfortable using the full range of their voices and sing in multiple harmony parts. Singers continue to develop healthy vocal technique, sight-reading and ear training ability and musicianship skills.

Additional Information

Tuition for the entire 2024-2025 season is $425 per child.  If joining midyear, the cost is $300 per child. Tuition includes all materials except concert attire. It also includes the use of professional Learning Files – audio files of all music by individual voice parts. Additionally formal and informal concert attire fees are $85 ($70 for formal concert attire and $15 for t-shirt). For those with more than one child singing, we are happy to offer a $50 sibling discount on the 2nd child’s tuition.

We believe that all children should have the opportunity to participate in a high level choral ensemble, and therefore need-based tuition assistance is available.
