The Coastal Youth Choir Choral Foundations Program
In harmony with the mission of Coastal Youth Choir ....to unite, mentor,
and transform the children of greater Savannah and the Low Country
through excellence in choral performance and music education...
Through a generous grant provided by Cultural Resources Center of the City of Savannah
and Gulfstream Aerospace, the board of directors of the Coastal Youth Choirs/Savannah Children's Choir, Inc.
is pleased to announce the continuation of the popular Choral Foundations Program, founded February 2020.
Choral Foundations is an outreach program that exists to enhance music choral education throughout
Savannah Chatham County Public Schools (SCCPSS) by sharing choral music instruction across with music
educators in the partner schools. These partnerships are grounded in the CYC support of general music
and choral directors,offering a variety of resources, development of music curriculum, strategies and
techniques, children’s choir repertoire, and more. Participating schools are invited to perform at
CYC Concerts throughout the year.
The CYC organization is passionate about the growth of every young singer. Through the
Choral Foundations Program the goal is to encourage, support, and strengthen existing school general
music and choral programs while uniting a diverse group of young people through music.
The CYC Choral Foundations Program hosts four Music Educator Nights throughout the school year as
well as funding for relevant professional development opportunities and conference attendance for teachers.
