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.
