Young Singers of the Palm Beaches was established by several music educators in Palm Beach County, including Shawn Berry, Michael Yannette and Connie Drosakis. Each of these founders has extensive experience in music for the young voice, and enjoys local and national recognition for their accomplishments. They envisioned a children's choral organization that would not be constrained by school boundaries, religious affiliations, racial bias, socio-economic barriers, or funding cuts to arts education.
This dream was realized during the summer of 2003. Our first choir season began with 79 singers, in grades 4 through 12, assigned by grade level and ability, to two choirs. In a decade, Young Singers has grown from this grassroots concept to a viable force in the choral community. We have performed locally, nationally, and internationally. We are in our 11th year as Palm Beach County's premiere community-based children's choir, based at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, with approximately 350 singers, in grades 3 through 12, from all parts of Palm Beach County.
