Pacific Youth Choir (PYC) serves over 300 singers in ten auditioned flagship choirs from kindergarten through 12th grade. Established in 2003 by Artistic Director Mia Hall Miller, PYC has become a cultural resource that changes lives through high-level choral artistry in an open, joyful, and nurturing environment.
In 2016, after being awarded the Oregon Symphony’s Schnitzer Wonder Award, PYC broadened its choral reach by providing a free after-school choir program at Whitman Elementary in Portland. Following the success of that program, PYC expanded this year with two additional locations, Marysville Elementary and the Wattles Boys and Girls Club in SE Portland.
PYC, honored to be “in residence” at Trinity Cathedral, collaborates regularly with Oregon’s top musical organizations including the Oregon Symphony, Metropolitan Youth Symphony, Oregon Ballet Theater, Whitebird Dance, Trinity Choir, and Thomas Lauderdale and Pink Martini in performances and recordings, including the “Gold” Joy to The World.
This season in addition to regularly scheduled concerts, PYC is excited to perform with the Oregon Symphony, Metropolitan Youth Symphony, Chanticleer, and Dr. Rollo Dilworth in workshops and mini concerts. PYC enjoys regional and national recognition. Last spring PYC was honored to perform for their sixth American Choral Directors Association Convention.
