Welcome to the Richmond Youth Honour Choir!

The Richmond Youth Honour Choir represents some of the best young singers in our city! We sing a wide variety of musical styles, from Bach to Broadway and everything in between. In past seasons, the RYHC has performed for the Emperor of Japan, at the 2010 Winter Olympics, and at Unisong in Ottawa. We were privileged to premier our own commission, “Listen to the Music” by acclaimed Canadian composer, Timothy Corlis, including the VYSO. We enjoy participating in a variety of Choral Festivals and collaborating with other choirs and performance groups. We have a very exciting year ahead of us. The theme for our 2015–2016 Season is “A Season of Silliness”. We hope to make new friends at Culture Days this September! We look forward to our Development Camp at Camp Squeah in the fall with guest clinician Sarona Mynhardt. This training camp is always a highlight of the choir members through the year! In December, we will be collaborating with the Chilliwack Youth Orchestra for our holiday season concerts! We have our annual school tour, and invited guests for Schmeckfest in April and at the very end of this season we are thrilled to be part of BC Chorfest here in Vancouver this year with a guest conductor form Australia! Please sign up for our Newsletter to stay up to date with all our great choral adventures.
