Lyric teamed up with the Gemini String Orchestra at their recent spring concert at Adelphi PAC. The Choir and the Orchestra both sounded amazing on their own, but the two together were unbelievable! See our YouTube channel for more.
A big thank you from Jennifer Koke, Camryn's mom:
"We had such a great day! Thank you so much for everything, it was truly beautiful! Please thank the children's choir for making Camryn feel so special. It is a day she will remember always, we can't thank you enough!"

New member auditions are being held Jan 28-29, and spring semester rehearsals start Feb. 4th for Prelude and Feb. 5th for Harmonia and Lyric. We hope to see you in the Spring!
The children sounded just beautiful singing God Bless America at the Islanders game on Saturday night. They were even broadcast on live television in NY and North Carolina!
While the children were terrific, we were as disappointed as some of you in the logistics of the evening. The Islanders host children's groups routinely and we thought the program would run more smoothly than it did. In the end, we hope you enjoyed the game and the opportunity for your children to perform before a local and national audience.
As you know, the children are also scheduled to perform at a Long Island Ducks game this spring. We will do everything we can to make the Ducks game this spring an even better experience.
