Young People's Chorus of Erie to hold open auditions

The Young People’s Chorus of Erie will audition potential new members for its chorus later this month.

YPC Erie membership is open to all youths ages 7-18 who demonstrate the ability to match pitch and have a genuine interest in singing. The chorus is divided into four choirs: Cantare is a treble choir for the youngest singers, Concert Chorus is a treble choir for girls and boys with unchanged voices, Young Men’s Chorus is an advanced choir for boys with changed voices and Chorale is the combination of Concert Chorus and Young Men’s Chorus.
