Established in 1994, the Gainesville Youth Chorus (GYC) is a not-for-profit, regionally based chorus for boys and girls ages 8-18 that has become a children's international touring choir. Our mission is to create an atmosphere in which children can develop and advance their musical talent, demonstrate personal and artistic growth, experience true joy and passion for singing through choral performances, and serve as cultural ambassadors for Gainesville, Florida, USA. GYC has two principle performing groups; Concertina Choir and the Concert Choir.
Come celebrate the Holidays with the Gainesville Youth Chorus. Join us on Saturday, December 7, 2013 at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church at 5:00PM. The concert is free to the public.

The Gainesville Youth Chorus will embark on its 6th International Tour in the summer of 2014. The "Alpine Majesty of Music Tour" will be held June 21 - July 4, 2014, and the children will act as youth ambassadors for our City as they sing their way through Italy, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and France, participating in the program "Joining Voices Across the Sea" while interacting with other children throughout these countries.
