Programs

Programs Based on Student Needs

Our priority is for every student to be in a setting where they can be both challenged and supported. The choirs reflect the priorities of strong music and strong communities for every student.

We host what are called "non-exclusionary auditions." This means that auditions are a chance to get to know every student in our organization and for us to place them in a choir where they will be successful, but every student who auditions will be accepted into DCYC!

Retreats

Retreats throughout the year exist to allow our students to connect and develop their voices musically. This isn't a time to focus on performance pieces, but just to learn more about ourselves and each other.

Performances

With performances each semester, students will get to share what they've learned with the community. The performances are a time of sharing and celebration of all the learning experiences students have had.

Learn from Guest Musicians

Part of DCYC's commitment to community is that we bring musicians into our space from the greater Denton community each semester. Our focus is for these guests to share music with them that is significant to their cultures, so our students can learn more about cultures they come from and cultures of those around them. Learn about our guest musicians here!

Welcoming Others In

Our Fall Dance Night is be open to our students' loved ones, so we can share in a musical community together. Spring Sing is a day where they can bring their friends, family members, and neighbors with them to rehearsal to learn and perform together!

Each semester, we have a day where loved ones can come into rehearsals to learn music alongside the students to involve the larger community!

Our Choirs

Overture Choir

The Overture Choir is for students who may have fewer experiences in choirs. Students in this choir will be working on developing their voices, beginning music literacy, and singing in a choir. A priority in this choir is to build fundamental skills in a way that is musical and exciting!

Coda Choir

The Coda Choir is our choir for students who have more experience singing in choirs. Students in this choir are developing mature singing abilities, singing in parts, and learning more challenging musical literacy. A priority in this choir is to continue building skills so they can be musical and applied to music they love!

Encore Choir

Every student in the Overture and Coda Choirs will be part of the Encore choir. An important part of our musical community is the space for all of our students to make music together. In this way, our choirs are working together on their musical goals in a way that builds up their confidence and competence!
