Chautauqua Youth Chorus
The Chautauqua Youth Chorus (formerly the Chautauqua Children's Chorale) was formed in 1988 by Nancy A. Krestic and Dr. Donald P. Lang. It was formed with the mission to promote excellence in singing and musical growth, and give a different dimension to the choral experience for children.
The Chorale is made up of two choirs of children ages 8 to 17: Junior Chorale and Concert Chorale. There are approximately 85 singers in Chorale. All three choirs perform a wide variety of music, including sacred, classical, secular choral music and contemporary music written specifically for unchanged voices and the concert stage.
Periodically the Chorale has commissioned choral works written specifically for them. The Chautauqua Children's Chorale is an Ensemble in Residence at Fredonia School of Music and is a member of Chorus America. Auditions are required for membership.
