Who We Are at DCYC

Our Mission and Values

The mission of the Denton Community Youth Choirs is to empower children's artistic growth through community-based musical experiences.

At DCYC, we believe that connected communities foster meaningful music and meaningful music connects communities. Our goal is for DCYC to reflect and be a part of the vibrant musical community here in the Denton area. We are building a musical community where every child belongs, has a voice, grows as an individual, and gets to be creative. We believe that children should be valued for who they are, not just for their musical abilities.

DCYC's community is one that brings people in, rather than excluding people. We realize that everyone doesn't have the same access to organizations like this, so making our choirs accessible to underserved communities is a top priority of ours. In our choir, we honor and accept students of all races, genders, family structures, socio-economic statuses, abilities and disabilities, linguistic backgrounds, and school structures. Communities are not strong or inclusive unless we are intentional about it being an inviting place for all children who want to learn about music. Learn more about how we create connected communities here.
