Who Are We
The Elgin Youth Choir is a unique group of singers from all walks of life.
We are committed to providing an environment where each choir member feels welcome and encouraged to sing.
For us, it’s not all about singing; it’s about creating a passion for music, learning, and sharing our gifts with others. We invite you to join us and celebrate the beauty of singing.
