Program Details


The Cape Youth Chorale is a dynamic group directed by John Yankee. Students experience the power and joy of choral music while pursuing the highest levels of excellence in vocal training and musicianship. We seek to enrich the lives of each and every student, share our music throughout the region, and build a reputation not only on the Cape but beyond.

Students experience and perform a variety of musical styles and historical periods, including folk, world, popular and classical songs. This is a wonderful opportunity for children to discover and uncover more about themselves and their "natural instrument," while making new friends, joyful music, and terrific memories.
