The Winston-Salem Youth Chorus (formerly Winston-Salem Children’s Chorus) was founded by Director Barbara C. Beattie in 1993. It consists of four singing groups with choristers ages 8 through 18. WSYC is dedicated to educating talented youth in music and choral skills while offering them abundant opportunities to share their talents locally and beyond. Singers learn vocal technique, music theory, performance and sight-singing skills, and music in multiple languages. Members represent more than 40 schools in Forsyth and surrounding counties.
