The San Diego Queer Youth Chorus (SDQYC) is taking applications for auditions to be held October 12, 2019 for the only chorus in the State of California of LGBTQIA2+ and allied middle and high school students.
San Diego Queer Youth Chorus encourages and fosters artistic expression, personal development, and leadership in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning intersex and allied youth and presents musical performances that provide an opportunity and space for young people, however they identify, to say “this is a place where I am accepted for who I am and everything that I bring.”
SDQYC is a joint project of San Diego Pride, San Diego Women’s Chorus, and the SDQYC AD, Lindsey Deaton, and operates under the guidance, support, and direction of a committee comprised of these groups. San Diego Pride acts as SDQYC’s fiscal sponsor.
SDQYC is led by Founding Artistic Director Lindsey Deaton, who is the Founding Artistic Director of the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles and the Diverse City Youth Chorus in Cincinnati, OH.
