As we begin our 25th year, Canterbury Youth Voices (CYV) continues our mission as a curricular and performance-based youth choral program, stressing artistic excellence with enhanced musical literacy through music training and performance opportunities where Oklahoma youth sing together! Children attending public, home, private, and parochial schools experience the excitement of music with friends in a supportive and nurturing environment.
Our four Canterbury Youth Voices choirs for grades 2-12 meet weekly on Tuesday evenings at the Bass School of Music on the campus of Oklahoma City University.
The curriculum-based program offers performance opportunities and experiences that set the CYV program apart from other regional children’s choruses. In addition to frequent collaborations with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic, Canterbury Youth Voices has been selected five times as an Oklahoma Music Educators Honor Choir, and honored once as a select choir for the Southwestern American Choral Directors Association.
CYV students perform in a variety of venues with educationally appropriate repertoire that builds skill sets transferable to all areas of learning and increases a life-long love of singing. Meet the Team.
