The American Choral Directors Association is a national organization that supports professional conductors in all kinds of settings- schools, churches and communities. The Florida Chapter conference will be held on November 4th and 5th at Seminole State College in Lake Mary. SYV was one of 5 choirs in the whole state of Florida to be selected to perform, a huge honor for our organization. In order to prepare properly, the Chamber Choir is rehearsing twice a week in addition to working at home on memorizing and assimilating the difficult repertoire that will be performed on November 4th. Our singers will be heard by prominant composers, directors and leaders who will travel to Florida to see what our state has to offer.
SYV singers have returned from an exciting and hugely successful trip to England and Ireland! The first half of the journey included performances in London and Coventry, before ferry and bus rides to Maynooth where SYV joined in the Celtic Voices: Affirmation of Hope Choral Festival. Along with five choirs from Ireland and the US, SYV performed a final concert at St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin.
