National Catholic Youth Choir (NCYC) announces concert schedule

By jpjanze - Posted on 05 June 2013

Excitement is building for the 14th season of the National Catholic Youth Choir (NCYC) camp and concert tour to be held June 17-July 2, 2013.

Chorister selection, in early April, was based on a written application, audition and references. Thirty five high school students representing Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin will travel to the campus of Saint John’s University in Collegeville, MN.

The 2013 theme is “For All the Saints.” The primary focus of the choir is liturgical; the choir seeks to implement the directive of Vatican Council II that the “treasury of sacred music” be preserved and fostered in the modern liturgy.

The public is invited to view daily camp and concert tour photos posted on the choir’s website beginning June 18. The choir departs June 25, for their concert tour with performances planned in Iowa, Illinois and Minnesota. A complete concert and liturgy schedule is listed below.

There is no charge to attend concerts; a free will offering will be collected for program costs. Visit the website to make an online donation. For more information, or to host a future concert, contact the NCYC office at
