YaGe Performing Ensembles
“Making Music Together!”

We are excited to offer our YaGe students a new experience of creating music together! Our YaGe Performing Ensembles provide our students the opportunity to develop their ensemble skills which are essential for a well-rounded musician!! The beautiful gift of music is more fully realized when we combine our efforts, each bringing our unique gifts, and making something together that is more beautiful than our individual parts. All performing ensemble groups will meet weekly from September – April , ending with our April Concert 2017.

An additional benefit this year --- there will be students selected from these groups to perform solos and small ensembles for performance in our April Concert 2017!!


Participating in one of our YaGe Choirs is a great opportunity for students to discover their natural singing voice as they learn to sing English songs using correct singing techniques including proper breath management, posture and diction. Students will improve their intonation skill, part singing ability and sight singing ability. Participating in one of our YaGe Choirs is a great beginning to a life long journey of healthy singing! YaGe Choirs will meet 1x week from September – April and end the season with a Spring Concert!


Our YaGe Instrument Ensemble provides young musicians the opportunity to develop their listening skills as they learn to play in an ensemble. They will learn to play different styles of music, improve their sight-reading ability, and all the while, have fun making music with their friends! We will be using music which has received top awards at competitions across America while winning the love of thousands of young musicians over the years. We look forward to showcasing our student’s progress in our Spring Concert!

Participating students must have previously studied private lessons at YaGe for at least 1 year. Auditions will be required for musicians who have not previously studied at YaGe.
