The Winston-Salem Youth Chorus (WSYC) will be celebrating its 25th year of impacting youth through music at its Annual Winter Celebration Concert titled “Winter Wonderland” on Saturday, Dec 2 at 7 p.m, at Salem College Fine Arts Center, 601 S. Church St. in Winston-Salem.

Come and hear the beautiful voices of about 80 singers ranging in age from 8-18 as they perform a variety of choral pieces. As a special treat for our 25th year, singers from The Enrichment Center will join the chorus on a few selections as guest performers. The Enrichment Center helps adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities develop life skills, social skills, and job skills through an arts-based program that stresses creativity and collaboration. “Their passion for music is infectious and we are thrilled to be singing alongside of some of their members” the chorus said in a press release.

The WSYC is known for its professional musicianship and quality choral performances. The chorus frequently performs with orchestras, professional artists, and ensembles of highest caliber each year plus tour nationally and internationally.

Tickets for the concert are $15 for adults, $10 for students and senior citizens.  Tickets can be purchased online at www.wsyouthchorus.org or at the door. The proceeds help the chorus fund part of its annual operating costs.

The Winston-Salem Youth Chorus is a nonprofit arts organization with singers in grades 3 through 12 representing over 40 schools in Forsyth and surrounding counties.  Annual tuition is kept at a modest rate and scholarships are provided to those in need in order to keep the program available to all children and youth in the community. 

Auditions to join the WSYC for the second half of the season will be held on Dec 11 and 14.  Go to www.wsyouthchorus.org to schedule your audition time.
