Concordia Youth Chorale
Concordia Youth Chorale is a choral organization in Central New Jersey for girls in kindergarten through college. Our auditioned choruses sing an ambitious schedule of concerts in Monmouth County, New Jersey and tour frequently.
We offer a Junior Chorale for girls, kindergarten through fifth grade, and a Youth Chorale for girls, sixth grade through undergraduate school. There is also an Opera Lab for teenage boys and girls interested in studying voice at college.
In our 2013-2014 season we visited the Gettysburg Battlefield and sang a program of Civil War songs at one of the New Jersey monuments. We then went on to the National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Emmitsburg and sang a full program there. In June 2014 we returned for our 4th visit to St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
We opened our 2014-2015 season with a concert at St. Paul’s Chapel at Ground Zero in NYC. After a concert devoted entirely to the works of Minnesota composer Daniel Kallman, we returned to Carnegie Hall for the 5th time to sing a program under the direction of famed youth chorus conductor and composer, Francisco Nunēz. Two weeks later we headed to Ireland for our 6th European tour!
Our 2015-2016 season opened with a performance of Anthony Hedges’ magnificent Psalm 104 at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in NYC. The balance of the season includes performances of Mechem’s Seven Joys of Christmas, Jenkins’ Requiem, Chilcott’s Jazz Songs of Innocence and a medley of contemporary favorites – a wonderful season of the best music for upper voices.
