The Concert Choir is an all-female choir for grades 6 through 12. Sixth-grade girls are encouraged to sing in both the Treble and Concert Choirs.

The singers focus on healthy vocal production and the development of music reading skills through two- and three- literature in multiple languages as well as ringing handchimes. Aural skills are strengthened through the use of ear training, solfege and sight-reading exercises. This is an opportunity to develop more advanced choral techniques, spanning a wide variety of genres including sacred and secular music, world music, gospel, Broadway and American popular songs. The Concert Choir represents Cary Youth Voices as ambassadors to the community, performing locally and regionally. There may be 8-10 performances per year.
