The Mississippi Youth Chorale is an auditioned choir for teen singers performing a wide range of musical styles.
Our goal is to provide an outstanding musical experience that brings together singers from across the Metro Jackson area to prepare great music, perform it with excellence, and give back to the communities in which we live.
If you are between the ages of 13 and 19, we hope you’ll consider joining us! Click here to get started.
The MYC is a new organization under the auspices of the The Mississippi Chorus, governed by their board of directors.
