The Detroit Opera Youth Chorus

The Detroit Opera Youth Chorus (DOYC) is a world-class training program for young vocalists ages 8 to 17 from metropolitan Detroit. The chorus performs as a separate ensemble as well as with international opera stars in Detroit Opera mainstage productions. Rehearsals take place at the Detroit Opera House on Monday evenings from September through May, led by Detroit Opera Chorus Master Suzanne Mallare Acton,  and Preparatory Chorus Conductor Jane Panikkar.


Come and Sing! We are inviting young singers to audition for the 2024-2025 Detroit Opera Youth Chorus. The 2024-2025 season will start in September with rehearsals primarily on Monday evenings at the Detroit Opera House. DOYC is open to singers ages 8 through seniors in high school. DOYC will perform A Winter Fantasy Concert on December 15, 2024 and and our spring youth opera, H.M.S. Pinafore, on March 8, 2025.
