The Festival Choir invites singers from all of the Valley’s many choirs.   It is a non-auditioned group and places in it fill up quickly. You can register as a quartet of all four voices and save on registration fees.

In 2018 the CYMC Festival Choir focus piece was the Missa brevis Sancti Joannis de Deo, by Haydn.

The Missa brevis Sancti Joannis de Deo, Hob. XXII:7, Novello 8, is a mass in B-flat major by Joseph Haydn. The missa brevis(short mass) was written around 1775 for the order of the Barmherzige Brüder (Brothers Hospitallers) in Eisenstadt, whose patron saint was John of God. Scored modestly for soprano, four-part mixed choir, two violins, organ and bass, it is known as the Kleine Orgelsolomesse (Little Organ Mass) due to an extended organ solo in the Benedictus movement.
