About Us

 

The Lancaster Fairfield Youth Choir (“LFYC”), now in its 22nd season operates under the auspices of the Lancaster Chorale, whose purpose is to operate a children’s choral program which can provide any interested child, regardless of previous musical experience, with a high-quality performance-based music education, while also serving as a model of training and performance in the children’s choral field.

 

LFYC is open to singers with treble voices, in grades 4 through 12, who live or attend school in central Ohio. 

 

LFYC has appeared at many choral festivals throughout the United States. They have appeared with the Lancaster Chorale, one of a very limited number of professional adult choirs in the nation, and have appeared repeatedly at the annual Lancaster Festival.  They have been a guest ensemble at the Ohio Music Educators’ Association annual Conference, and twice  at the Ohio Association of Elementary School Administrators Annual Convention.  They were a featured guest ensemble at the 1999 Annual National Convention of the Organization of American Kodaly Educators in Columbus, Ohio.  In 2003 the choir was awarded the rating of Superior and First Place at the Music in the Parks competition at Cedar Point.  In 2006 the choir was featured with the Lancaster Chorale at the Southern Theater in Columbus and was the feature guest ensemble for the Tri City Kodaly Educator's choral festival.   In 2008 the choir toured New York City and performed at the cathedral of St. John the Divine. In 2010 the choir participated in the Windy City Choral Festival in Chicago.  In 2015 the choir toured Washington DC and performed at the Washington DC veterans hospital and the Jefferson Memorial.

 

LFYC made it's international debut in June, 1998, when they traveled to Belgium and the Netherlands, and performed with two prestigious European children’s choirs.    In July of 2006 the choir traveled beyond our borders once again traveling to Canada and participating in the Niagara International Music Festival under the direction of Francisco Nunez.  

 

Many singers have represented LFYC participating in local, all-state, regional, and national honors choirs.  In 2014, LFYC was honored to have 15 singers participate in the OAKE National honor choirs in Atlanta, GA.
