The Edmond Youth Chorus is an auditioned, honor chorus for boys & girls in the 4th to 8th grades in the fall.

- Singers do not need to have anything prepared for the auditions.
Director, Leah McDonald, music teacher at Heritage Elementary, “is passionate when it comes to music and children and we are thrilled she continues to share her talent with us,” states Shannon Price, Executive Director of the FAI. “I do my best to share with chorus members a lifelong love of music. Music and art enhance self-esteem, self-awareness and fosters understanding between cultures,” says Leah McDonald. Chorus Members receive vocal instruction and learn a wide range of selected music such as contemporary, sacred, folk, patriotic, seasonal, and classical. During this time of COVID, we are making plans to conduct rehearsals in the safest way possible, including a maximum of 25 singers, face shields, distancing, and encouraging masks. We will focus on making music together, having fun, and music literacy!
The Edmond Youth Chorus is one of the many cultural projects sponsored by the Fine Arts Institute of Edmond. The FAI is a non-profit organization offering educational opportunities for children and adults in the visual and performing arts. Click here to schedule your friendly audition.
