The Cream City Youth Chorale is the next iconic institution upholding Milwaukee’s reputation for excellence in the arts.
Above all else, we represent a
higher standard in the choral arts.
We don't just develop singers, we create artists who sing.
Ignite. Inspire. Transform.
Inspired by the young artists of Milwaukee, Founder Lynn Swanson and faculty Ellen Shuler, Michael Werni, Zachary Beeksma and Trisha Ours want to give our children opportunities to fully develop as artists and singers.
Children begin to experience different art forms from the time they are born. They listen and duplicate sounds, they discover dance through movement, they learn to create things with their hands just with the food on their plate!
We encourage them to continue exploring these mediums, but rather than compartmentalizing them, we unite them as they sing.
We experience music from Chant to Renaissance to Baroque and Classical, from Folk Songs around the globe to Pop and Broadway, and Spirituals and Gospel Music.
All are invited! We have opportunities for singers ages 8-18. Because of the current pandemic COVID-19, we must delay the start of our Inaugural Season. We'll still have several concerts this season present day composers all the way back to Gregorian Chant. Our season will begin in August, 2021 with regular rehearsals.
Please email us if you have questions.
The staff at Cream City Youth Chorale whole-heartedly feels that until we know more about the risks of singing together, the healthiest option for the beginning of our inaugural season is August 2021. We regret that we must make this announcement, but it is in the best interests of our families and our staff. We will plan to resume live rehearsals and performances in August 2021.
Thank you for your continued optimism and support.
