About the Toronto Youth Choir

Whether you’ve sung in choirs your whole life or are embracing the chorister life as a young adult, you’ll be right at home with the Toronto Youth Choir (TYC).

Founded in 2013, as part of the award-winning Toronto Children’s Chorus, TYC offers a space for innovation, inclusion and musical excellence to youth and young working professionals ages 14 to 30 from across Toronto. We tackle diverse and engaging repertoire ranging from classic choral canon to modern a cappella compositions and popular classics. TYC performs at incredible venues around Toronto and tours internationally, providing exciting musical opportunities both near and far.

TYC has performed with The King’s Singers, Irish Youth Choir, West Liberty University Singers, Choir of Trinity College Melbourne, Elmer Iseler Singers, Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. In April 2018, the choir undertook its first international tour, travelling to New York City to sing with The King’s Singers in Carnegie Hall. TYC made its debut with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra in June 2019, performing Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana alongside the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir & TCC under the direction of Donald Runnicles.
