The Honors Youth Choir of Chorus North Shore is an outstanding group of 50
talented young local musicians. They come together to learn the discipline
and joy of shared music–and many go on to study music in college. The
children come from communities all over the North Shore–from Rockport to
Newburyport and Marblehead–and represent the diversity of the area with
children from public and private schools and several who are home schooled.
The Choir’s repertoire includes work by Faure, Brahms, Handel, Mozart,
Britten, and Bernstein. They regularly sing with the Chorus North Shore,
matching the discipline of the 125-voice adult chorus.
The Honors Youth Choir is a fully funded program allowing students aged ten
through high school the opportunity to learn and perform choral masterworks
and present extraordinary concerts. The singers are selected by audition and
must attend scheduled rehearsals and concerts. Chorus North Shore artistic
director, Sonja Dahlgren Pryor and executive director Mary Sepich bring
their experience as lifelong educators and musicians to the planning and
development of this special group.
