The Mastersingers City of Palms Youth Choir is an educational outreach program of the Fort Myers Symphonic Mastersingers. The goal of this program is to enrich the lives of young singers from diverse backgrounds through the study and performance of choral music.


Participants Will:

• be taught to sing using healthy vocal technique and posture.

• learn to read and understand music.

• be provided an opportunity to rehearse and perform age-appropriate music of diverse styles, cultures and languages.

• be inspired to attain the highest level in both music and artistry.

The Mastersingers City of Palms Youth Choir was founded in 2016. During its inaugural season, the choir performed in ten concerts and events across Southwest Florida. In December, they appeared with the Gulf Coast Symphony Orchestra in their annual Deck The Halls concert at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall. They also performed the world-premiere of Jason Bahr’s Symphony No. 2 with the Mastersingers and the Mastersingers Festival Orchestra. Their regular concert repertoire included both sacred and secular works which spanned the 9th century through the 21st century. They have also performed in many different venues across Lee County including several churches and Hammond Stadium.

The 2017-2018 season will include performances

with the Gulf Coast Symphony in their annual Deck The Halls program in December as well as a Leonard Bernstein tribute concert in March. They will sing in the inaugural Readings and Carols with the Fort Myers Symphonic Mastersingers and other choirs.


Our Choirs

The middle school choir consists of eager singers in grades 4-8. This choir’s focus is on grounding singers in healthy singing technique within a safe and fun learning environment, which engages them in social and community service through the gift of music. Rehearsals are on Tuesday

evenings from 6:00-7:00. The high school choir is an auditioned group for motivated singers in grades 9-12. The choir rehearses from 7:15-8:30 each week and draws young singers from Southwest Florida representing a variety of Southwest Florida high schools. Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings.


How Can I Join CPYC?

Singers in grades 4 through 12 are placed in a choir based on their ability and experience. A simple vocal audition (no preparation required) will determine the best fit for your singer. Beginners are welcome!
