Our Mission

The San Fernando Valley Youth Chorus promotes musical excellence in children and provides children and youth of diverse ethnic, cultural, and economic backgrounds in the San Fernando Valley with the opportunity for artistic and personal growth through superior choral instruction, community outreach, and choral music performance.


Our Commitment to Cultural Equity and Inclusion

The San Fernando Valley Youth Chorus provides a welcoming environment for all. We value and celebrate diversity in our artists/singers, programming, Board, volunteers, staff, audiences and community partners. The San Fernando Valley Youth Chorus does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, ethnicity, color, national origin, cultural background, ancestry, religion, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, marital status, physical or mental disability, source of payment, genetic information, citizenship, primary language, or immigration status.
