Canterbury Youth Voices

In its 22nd year, Canterbury Youth Voices (CYV) is a curricular and performance-based youth choral program which stresses artistic and personal excellence by enhancing singing skills and musical literacy through music training and performance opportunities. Children attending public, home, private and parochial schools, 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 young people of all races, ethnicities, and economic status who demonstrate a commitment to better themselves, their schools, and their communities through training as an auditioned youth singer in the CYV program.

My favorite memory is singing on the stage of the Civic Center for Carmina Burana with my choir. I had sung with the Philharmonic before during War Requiem, but it was an amazing feeling to actually be onstage with them instead of just being in the balcony. I loved being right in the middle of the orchestra and with Canterbury Voices. I was unforgettably, inside the music.

The curriculum-based program offers performance opportunities and experiences that set the CYV program apart from 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.
