Admittance into VYC is based on interest, enthusiasm and commitment rather than exceptional musical ability.
Being a part of the VYC community is both a privilege and a responsibility. Students have an opportunity to create wonderful musical memories and experiences that they will carry with them for a lifetime. Singers must be willing to commit to rehearsals and performances.
