Dear PYC Friends and Family,
Pacific Youth Choir, the life-changing choir Portland-Metro children grew up with is in the midst of its 16th season. Mia Hall Miller continues to lead and inspire as always, and we are bursting with happy, joyful singers. This year we have nearly 400 singers in our program and everyone is sounding incredible!
To ensure the success of these spectacular opportunities and endeavors for our young community, we’ve significantly increased our operating budget and ask for your help in making this budget a reality. Please consider making a gift to the choir this year as we strive to enhance the cultural fabric of the Portland-metro area.
Support your local Children's Choir!
