Youth Choir of Central Oregon (YCCO)

Youth Choir of Central Oregon (YCCO)

 

Celebrating its 26th season in 2015-16, the Youth Choir of Central Oregon (YCCO) is the region’s premier extra-curricular choral program that provides advanced vocal experiences for talented first through twelfth grade students with unchanged singing voices in three choirs, Singers School, Debut Choir and Premiere Choir. The major goal of the YCCO is to provide an opportunity for musical expression and personal development in a supportive and joyful environment. Founded in 1990 by Beth Basham, the Youth Choir of Central Oregon has enriched the lives of thousands of young Central Oregon singers with quality music education.

Beth Basham and her YCCO staff have expanded children’s minds and musical abilities to make them leaders in their school while showing audiences that children’s voices can be sophisticated, profoundly musical and artistically excellent.

As ambassadors of music, YCCO singers share their gifts with people around the world and learn to appreciate diverse cultures while representing our community, state and country. Past YCCO tours include: Canada, Hawaii, Greece, England, Chicago, New Orleans, New York City and Italy.
