One of the most enjoyable parts of our work at the Youth Lyric is the staging of the annual Youth Lyric Festival.
Every student who is a member of Youth Lyric gets the opportunity to perform on stage at a professional venue, for parents, friends and family members. The emphasis is on a non-competitive celebration of the performing arts in the very broadest sense. Classes present poetry, improvisation and dance drama and receive words of encouragement and guidance from an adjudicator.
While the emphasis is on the non-competitive approach (only Youth Lyric students are allowed to participate in the festival), we do award cups and shields for outstanding effort and achievement on the part of the students.
