Thank You and Good Luck!

As cheesy as it sounds YYC really is one big family. It’s a community for people from all different backgrounds who come together with one common joint passion. YYC not only provides its members with high quality vocal and musical tuition, but it teaches so many life skills without even trying to … Teamwork, social living, time management, organisational skills, leadership and so much more. As a founder member of the YYC I have watched how the choir has grown and evolved over the years and how much pleasure it is given so many young people around Yorkshire. I am eternally grateful to all that YYC gave me, from shaping my musical education to giving me life long friends. Catherine Benson Aged 24
