In its 22nd year, the Canterbury Youth Voices (CYV) of Canterbury Voices is a curricular and performance-based youth choral program which stresses artistic and personal excellence by enhancing the singing skills and musical literacy of children through choral music training and performance opportunities. Children attending public, private and parochial schools, as well as those who are home-schooled, make new friends while experiencing the excitement of music in a supportive and nurturing environment.
CYV values its unique role in central Oklahoma by actively seeking and supporting those young people of all races, ethnicities, and economic status who demonstrate a commitment to better themselves, their schools and communities through training as an auditioned youth singer in the CYV program.
CYV offers several choruses, by audition, for children of all backgrounds.
Apprentice Choirs (grade range 2-6) focuses on building vocal techniques and expanding musical literacy.
Chorales (grade range 7-12) works to refine and expand musical and vocal skills while learning more sophisticated music.
WHAT MAKES CYV UNIQUE?
The curriculum-based program offers performance opportunities and unique experiences that set the CYV program apart from the other regional children’s choruses. From the Pops, Classics and Discovery Series of the Oklahoma City Philharmonic to the ACDA National Convention, CYV students perform in a variety of venues with educationally appropriate repertoire that builds skill sets transferable to other areas of learning and increases their love of singing.
