Superb vocal training, unmatched musicality, sophisticated repertoire,

 unique performance opportunities, interesting travel, choral singing at its finest!

Entrance into and advancement within CDYC is based upon audition results, experience, and reliability.

Our singers say it all....


      "The Armed Man" CDYC senior chamber sings with Albany Pro Musica 2017, "Sanctus".  Such an incredibly powerful piece of music set to a visual backdrop.
