Rainier Youth Choirs is seeking experienced high school tenors and basses with music reading skills to join its Young Men’s Ensemble, directed by Brian Hoskins.

Known for their high level of performance excellence, the men also perform with the Young Women’s Ensemble on a wide variety of music, including contemporary, world music, masterworks and folk songs.

The groups rehearse at 6:50 to 8:30 p.m.Mondays in Covington.

Vocina, RYC’s second- and third-grade choir, offers children the opportunity to grow in confidence and develop their singing voices and musical ears. A joyful exploration of songs and music activities and games prepares the children to perform with confidence and commitment.

Rehearsals are in Covington on Mondays or at Kent Elementary on Thursdays from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

A few openings remain for Bella Voce, a training choir for grades 4 and up, no experience necessary, and for Colla Voce, experienced singers with basic music reading skills for grades 6 and up. Both meet Mondays in Covington, from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m.

Season 11, “No Limits,” runs Sept. 11 through May.

Prospective singers are asked to apply at RainierYouthChoirs.org. Season tickets are also now available online.
