Show Details

The average Louisville citizen would be hard pressed to name nonprofit organizations that have been able to celebrate 50 years. The Louisville Youth Choir (LYC) makes that feat possible. LYC was originally founded in 1967 as a high school choir for exceptional talent by Italio Taranta, a former Professor of Music and Choral Conductor at the University of Louisville (UofL) School of Music, supported by Robert Whitney, former UofL School of Music Dean, and Melvin Dickinson, Conductor of the Louisville Bach Society.

Guest choirs from across Kentucky will be featured in the concert that will be opened by LYC. Experience how music can impact an individual from childhood through adulthood and hear the unique regional style of each choir as they prepare to blend their voices with others from across the Bluegrass State. The finale of this 50th Anniversary Celebration will unite LYC with the guest choirs as they present the world premiere of a new choral work--LYC's gift to our Commonwealth.


SCENE at the Center, our small plates eatery, offers bar and food service two hours prior to most performances in Whitney Hall and the Bomhard Theater. Kitchen service ends as the curtain rises, but beverage service will continue throughout the performances and extend through midnight on Friday and Saturday nights.
