Richmond Youth Honour Choir
The Richmond Youth Honour Choir is a premier choral program for children and youth in Richmond and the Metro Vancouver area. Their mission is to provide premier choral training, including musical literacy, vocal technique and a repertoire that goes from classical, Broadway, Pop, Jazz and World Music. We also provide a variety of performance opportunities, from our own annual concerts to collaborating with other arts organizations and concerts, Festivals and touring. The RYHC has toured BC, to Ottawa, to Richmond's Sister City, Wakayama, Japan and surrounding areas, to Namibia, and South Africa for the World Choir Games in 2018. Our touring choir is collaborating for our 21st Season with the Fraser Valley Children's Chorus and returning to the World Choir Games in Aukland, New Zealand in July 2024 where we will not only participate in the Games, represent Canada in the Parade of Nations, but have been invited to be part of the Festival Choir in the Closing Ceremonies! We have several other collaborations with other choirs planned throughout the year that all of our choirs will get to participate in. The in March of 2025, we will be returning to Richond's Sister City, Wakayama. So if you have a child our youth who loves to sing and wants many different opportunities to connect with other choirs and even international experiences now is the time to get involved! The RYHC is committed to the health, safety and well-being of all their choristers and their families.
