Angel City Youth Chorale

For questions and more information, or if your school or organization is interested in partnering with us to bring choral music education to your community, please contact Annie Greskoviak
In 2018, Angel City Chorale created the Angel City Youth Chorale (ACYC) in partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs around Los Angeles. As the program continues to evolve, we now work with Boys & Girls Clubs and local schools on weekdays through our After-School Program, and our Concert Choir rehearses on Saturdays. All of our programs are offered at no cost, and include basic elements of music theory, choral singing skills, singing with movement, performance technique, and more. We challenge our choristers to develop the creative, technical and intellectual skills to become stewards of the transformative powers of music in their communities and beyond.
