Las Cruces Youth Choirs



Conductor: Ms. Ida Marie Holguin


Under the direction of Ida M. Holguin, the Las Cruces Youth Choir is a non-auditioned community choir for kids from 7th through 12th grade. Ms. Holguin will teach and build healthy and age-appropriate vocal techniques, all in a fun and encouraging setting. Techniques that will be addressed include breath, vocal placement, producing a healthy tone, vowel unification, posture, and more. Choir members will learn a wide variety of music from various historical eras, regions, composers, languages, and styles.


Rehearsals will take place every Saturday afternoon from 2:00 – 4:00 in the NMSU Choir Room. Each rehearsal is designed to engage singers while helping them grow in skill level, confidence, and friendship.


In order to continue to support our area public, charter, and private school music programs, it is a requirement that if a choral program is available to singers at their schools, they must be enrolled in that program in order to be eligible to join the LCYC. Singers who do not have the opportunity to be part of a choral program at their schools can join LCYC without any prerequisites. We are so excited to offer this program to the young singers in Las Cruces and the surrounding areas.
