Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide DC area youth with advanced choral music instruction that reinforces academic and social skills needed for success.

Description

Since 1995, the Eastern Choral Society, a nonprofit organization established to bring momentum and structure to the Eastern High School Choir under the direction of Joyce Garrett, has been a pioneer in the field of choral music and has shown the world that DC youth are capable of remarkable beauty and expressive power. In May 2005, the Eastern Choral Society board of directors unanimously voted to broaden its mission to serve more students through the creation of the Washington Youth Choir. Formation of the Washington Youth Choir is in direct response to staggering cutbacks in music programs throughout the DC Public School system and the growing number of unsupervised youth during the hours of 3:30-6:30 p.m. Geared to DC area high school students, the Washington Youth Choir strives to be the premier youth choir in DC by providing advanced vocal training and enhancing the academic and social development of its participants through its core programs: 1. Advanced music curricula inculcated with core values and life skills. 2. Extensive exposure college and the overall college application process. 3. College scholarships upon graduation from high school.
