NRYSC AMBASSADORS

Students in the Symphony and Chorus are welcome to participate in NRYSC Ambassadors and perform short programs in schools and at public events, in order to let people know about NRYSC and invite young people to join.

TWO SEASONS PER YEAR

The New River Youth Symphony and Chorus meets for weekly rehearsals during the the fall and spring seasons, with a break during the winter months when harsh weather often makes for hazardous travel on the roads. During the school year, rehearsals are held on Monday nights at Fayetteville Christ Fellowship Church.

Students are encouraged to join NRYSC for the entire year, so that their musicianship can grow and students can better contribute to the ensembles. Season breaks are entry points for new members to join. Concerts are the culmination of each season.
