Delaware Youth Chorale

The Delaware Youth Chorale (DYC) provides young people from the Kent County area an opportunity to learn and perform fine choral music, in association with the Delaware Choral Society. DYC welcomes students from 3rd to 8th grades without audition. Formed in 2014, DYC provides local students with the opportunity to sing engaging, challenging choral music in a non-school setting. Under the direction of Heather Swartzentruber, our singers work on developing musical skills and vocal techniques and learn a range of music in a variety of languages. 

Join us for our next concert on April 4, 2020 – ‘Music for You!’

The Delaware Youth Chorale invites you for an afternoon of ‘Music for You!’ On Saturday, April 4 @ 4 pm at the Presbyterian Church of Dover, the DYC and the Delaware Choral Society’s Outreach Ensemble will present a program of songs that will be fun for the whole family!
