Mission & Purpose

The mission of the Berks Youth Chorus is to enrich our community by fostering and promoting choral excellence in young people through music education and quality performances.

Since 1992, the young musicians of the Berks Youth Chorus have delighted audiences with their superb artistry and joyful enthusiasm. Through a rigorous music curriculum, BYC singers acquire an outstanding education and learn crucial life lessons-like teamwork, time management, priority setting, self-presentation, communication and personal responsibility. And the culturally diverse, musically diverse repertoire performed with precision by these trained young voices is inspirational and uplifting for anyone who listens.

With its headquarters and rehearsals located in Reading’s geographically accessible GoggleWorks, BYC is dedicated to making life-changing musical opportunities accessible to all children.
