BYC’s oldest group (Chamber Choir) is seen here performing an arrangement of Fleet Foxes’ hit single from 2008 that was made popular by the Pentatonix 2014 a cappella cover.This song has become a winter hit in choral music. Beautiful harmonic layers as well as body percussion keep the audience and performers on their toes!
The Bainbridge Youth Choir (BYC) is proud to offer choir classes to all youth ages 4 through high school. Formerly the Olympic Girls’ Choir, Founding Artistic Director Laura Milleson, was succeeded by Angie Godfrey in the Fall of 2018. BYC offers choral instruction to five different age groups: Early Singers, Encora, Cantabile, and Chamber Choir, and a Teen Choral Series (new this year!) serving children from Bainbridge Island and the Kitsap area.
Bainbridge Youth Choir is under the umbrella of the Bainbridge Chorale and is supported in rehearsal and performances by its collaborative pianist, Laetitia Lehman-Pearsall Delfino. BYC continued classes using Zoom since April of 2020 and was finally able to meet in-person this past May! After a successful summer of multiple camps, BYC is ready for the Fall session to begin in September. Interested in joining? No auditions necessary: find out more at www.bainbridgeyouthchoir.com
