Where the Light Begins – Rainier Youth Choirs 15th Anniversary Concert

May 22 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

There is no admission fee required, but we do ask that you fill out the Concert Registration in advance if you can come.
Celebrate Rainier Youth Choirs’ 15th anniversary at this concert! They will be premiering the commissioned work, “this light”, that will be funded, in part, by the Kent Arts Commission grant. About 15 alumni are returning to perform the song with our current members.
Prior to the pandemic, RYC had grown to include 100+ members in six ensembles with a staff of six highly qualified, award-winning choral directors. They’d had their first international trip to Ireland in 2017, were gearing up to sing at Carnegie Hall in 2020 and planning for a European tour in 2023. Then the world changed…
RYC survived a full season online, and went back to in-person – but masked –  singing since last fall. The uncertainty of the ever-evolving situation kept us mindful of the need to keep things simple (no formal uniforms, trips, community events) and to give extra emphasis on reestablishing the social/emotional connections we can make through singing together. Our RYC family culture remains strong and we have seen tremendous growth musically in these wonderful young people since our reboot. We optimistically look forward to rebuilding our numbers, skills and activities back to pre-pandemic levels in 2022-23.
