NRYSC is an excellent opportunity for students from all over southern West Virginia to sing in a chorus and/or play in a symphony and a wonderful chance to improve their technical skills, develop musicianship, learn to work together and make new friends. If you know of any 5-24 year olds, who likes to sing or plays an instrument, please share this with them. We are hoping to build our programs this spring and go bigger and better!
The Beginner Chorus, under the direction of Lauren Floyd, serves 5 to 10-year-old students. This group helps children to focus, understand rhythms, match pitch and is a great place for young singers to learn how to sing together and be prepared to perform in front of an audience while having a great time together!
The Youth Chorus, directed by Tim Bailey, is a place for students ages 10 to 24 to develop vocal technique and to experience the camaraderie of a group who enjoy performing together. This fantastic, fun group will entertain you with their dynamic performance and you never know what song they are going to pull out of the hat next!
The New River Youth Symphony performs concert literature from the great composers, as well as the occasional jazz piece and holiday favorites. Since this is a full orchestra; woodwinds, brass, and concert percussion students are welcome, as well as those who play violin, viola, cello, or bass. Symphony is for students ages 10 to 24, and is conducted by William Bailey.
