The Snohomish County Youth Chorus has taken several trips and enjoyed opportunities to perform at events around the country, such as the National Children's Choir Festival in Philadelphia in April 2004 and a choir competition in San Francisco in 2002. The 2005-2006 season included travels to Leavenworth for our Angelissimo Choir. Our Bella Voce Singers traveled to San Diego. In April 2007 the Bella Voce Choir traveled to Chicago and performed in the Chicago Heritage Festival. The Choir traveled to England in the summer 2009 and competed at the Vancouver Heritage Festival competition in May of 2010. In 2013, Intermezzo, Bella Voce, and Ragazzo Coro participated in the Anahiem Heritage Festival. In April 2014, we will stay close to home and perform in the Seattle Heritage Festival.
In past years, choir members have been very successful in raising money to help with the costs of these trips and events. We are confident that this success can be repeated for upcoming trips.
A series of fundraising events are in progress or planned for the near future. In addition to the events listed below, we're always open to new fundraiser ideas.
- Program Ad Fund Raiser: form available for download here.
- Concert advertising: Sponsors can take out ad space on printed concert programs
- Car Washes: These have been quite successful for the choir in the past, and we'll do it again when the weather is more trustworthy.
- Corporate Matching Funds: Many companies generously offer matching funds to organizations like SCYC; all you have to do is designate us as your choice. If you or someone you know works for a company that matches your charitable donations, please consider helping the students of the Snohomish County Youth Chorus Program. All donations are used for scholarships in the areas of tuition and for students travel expenses.
