What Is FYC?

-There will be no Youth Choir for the 2018-2019 School Year-


Fairbanks Youth Choir

Who: Any student in grades 4-8 may join the choir. Members are ambassadors of Fairbanks Local Schools and are thus expected to demonstrate excellent behavior, attitude, academic performance, and school and rehearsal attendance.

What: The choir will have various performance opportunities throughout the school year. This is a great learning opportunity for the students and a great way to serve our community.

When: Choir will take place throughout the school year in Mrs. Cooper’s music room. A parent meeting is scheduled before rehearsals begin to ensure everyone is informed and to answer any questions about the organization.  Rehearsals will start shortly after the parent meeting. A voice check might be used just to see where the student’s voice is currently. This is NOT an audition.

Where: The choir will rehearse Tuesday and Thursday after school (3:15-4:30) in the FES music room. There will be a variety of performance opportunities throughout the school year that will occur in various locations. Wednesday rehearsals may be added in preparation for upcoming concerts if needed. Please check the schedule closely.

Why: Children involved in choir learn proper singing technique, the importance of responsibility, and teamwork. Singing exercises our lungs. It tones up our intercostal muscles and our diaphragm. There is an increase in self-esteem and confidence. Singing is useful as a stress reducer. Choir enables you to meet more people. Choir brings people together and encourages a sense of community. It offers opportunity for giving and receiving positive feedback and lastly, it is a forum for fun & laughter!

What you will need:

-A pencil and a black 1″ binder with a clear plastic front cover.

-Concert Uniform: tshirt, black pants, or jeans

-Snack for after school (please keep it quick and concise)

-A positive attitude, a love for music, and an open mind!!!
