NJYC provides premiere performances opportunities while inspiring young singers to discover, learn, and perform beyond their expectations.
NJYC is home to 3rd to 12th-grade singers from communities across the state of New Jersey. Choristers achieve musical excellence while building friendships, fostering self-expression, and experiencing once-in-a-lifetime performance opportunities.
Our philosophy and goals revolve around our choristers and the music. It is far more than singing: we teach values, we nurture, and we inspire.
The New Jersey Youth Chorus, originally the Somerset Hills Children’s Chorus, was founded in 1992 by Trish Joyce.
NJYC drew 30 choristers from the Bernardsville and Basking Ridge area.
Now celebrating more than 30 years of musical excellence and exceptional performance experiences, NJYC is home to choristers from throughout northern and central New Jersey.
