NRYSC is an excellent opportunity for students, ages 5 to 24, 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.

The Youth Chorus, directed by Savannah Peters, 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 Emerging Strings is a performing group for beginner-level students playing a variety of string instruments — violin, viola, cello, bass. The children will learn how to play beginner songs together in a mini orchestra setting.

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.
