Singing in a concert, is something many students look forward to throughout the semester. During rehearsals, kids work hard on improving their vocal technique and learning choir songs. In a performance, students share the beautiful harmonies and songs they have learned with family and friends. Kids are excited to dress up, look their best, and perform the finest version of every song.
All Vail Youth Voices performances are free of charge. Moreover, no tickets will be required for admission. Our concerts are community friendly events. Those who wish to attend are welcome. Please support the kids who sing with Vail Youth Voices by bringing your family, friends, and neighbors to enjoy an energizing evening of music.
The Vail Theatre of the Arts is a spectacular location to hold a concert. Not to mention, performing here gives singers the experience of performing on a professional stage with a live pianist. The theatre’s performing arts director and his assistant work hard back stage to make our show run smoothly. Care is taken to make sure the sound quality and lights are just right for our performance. Equally important is that this wonderful venue that helps build personal development and self-confidence for Beginning Choir students and Advanced Choir students.
With this in mind, Vail Youth Voices singers need to arrive early for a final rehearsal. This means that parents need to drop off both Beginning Choir and Advanced Choir students at the concert venue before the performance begins. As mentioned above, this ensures that the sound quality, lights, and stage directions are ready for parents, friends, family, and neighbors to enjoy. Also, running through our program, gives singers more confidence. Students will be able to make singing and stage direction adjustments without the presence of an audience. Keeping this in mind, parents need to drop off their choir students and then return later for the finished performance.
After the preconcert rehearsal, singers are ready to perform. Concert time is when the Vail Youth Voices performance is scheduled to begin. The auditorium doors open 20 minutes before the posted concert time. This allows parents and community members to find a good seat and be ready for this exciting event.

Concert attire is a wonderful way for students to look professional during a performance. Often, professional musicians are required to wear specific clothing during performances. Additionally, the cost of purchasing choir show apparel can be a financial burden on families. Therefore, the goal of Vail Youth Voices is to keep performance attire as simple as possible. Singers need to wear all black, dressy clothing. There might even be some of these items listed below in your family’s closet already. Dressing for success will help students be prepared to enter the world of professional musicianship.

Boys: Young men need to wear a black long sleeve button down shirt with a tie, black pants, black socks, and all black shoes.
Please do not wear jeans, sweats, spandex, leggings, yoga pants, sneakers, flip-flops, sandals or white shoelaces
