Equity & Inclusion Statement

At Brooklyn Youth Chorus we believe that every voice matters.

We actively strive to build a community that is dedicated to realizing the full potential of each chorister.

We stand for absolute respect for each individual; an appreciation and understanding of the broad spectrum of all our differences be they cultural, racial, religious socio-economic, or based on sexual identity, gender, physical or intellectual ability; and the ability to experience bonds of friendship through the joy of music.

We celebrate open-mindedness and critical thinking and seek to create opportunities for students to explore and embrace these important values together.

We recognize that a diverse community is an asset that must be continually cared for, preserved, and enhanced, with constant attention, for the benefit of all its members.
