“As the Buffalo Niagara Youth Chorus enters its 25th anniversary year, I find myself reflecting on my time spent participating in the chorus and how it has helped me grow as a musician. At the age of 8 years old, this choir and my ever-supportive family granted me the opportunity to create and explore my interest in vocal music. This would end up being the greatest gift I could ever receive. Singing with the chorus at a young age would prompt a lifetime journey through music that would influence my personal relationships, career, and all-around growth as a person.”
