Detroit Opera Youth Chorus - Detroit Opera

The Detroit Opera Youth Chorus is a permanent children’s ensemble for metropolitan Detroit youth interested in vocal musical theatrical art. It provides exceptional choral music and theatrical performance instruction in a professional environment to young people.

Founded in 2007, the Detroit Opera Youth Chorus (Formerly MOTCC) presents an annual winter concert in December and produces its own fully staged children's opera each spring at the Detroit Opera House. Past performances have included the Detroit premiere of Seymour Barab’s The Maker of Illusions, the Detroit premiere of Cary John Franklin’s The Very Last Green Thing, Malcolm Williamson’s The Happy Prince and Gilbert and Sullivan’s H.M.S. Pinafore. In March, 2014 Hans Krása's Brundibár was presented with Ela Stein Weissberger, a Holocaust survivor and original cast member, who participated in the production.
