They're Off And Running

The first rehearsals last night, Tuesday 11th, were fabulous! We are so pleased with the caliber of talent and the eagerness of students to learn. Even Apprentice Choir practically learned and memorized a song in just one rehearsal.

We will continue to accept new students in all choirs through September. Contact Linda Walker, Artistic Director, at 208 230-4344.

We still have openings in Premier Singers for talented singers age 14 and older.

Fall Auditions & Rehearsals

Fall, 2018 Term To Begin

When Treasure Valley Young Artists took the stage May 11th for their Spring Awards Concert, they beamed with a radiance born of enthusiasm and confidence. It was evident from the very first strains to the thrilling Grand Finale that these precious vocalists had paid the price in hard work and discipline.
“I am so proud of our young singers,” stated Linda Walker, Artistic Director. “They worked diligently to memorize their songs and to perfect the sound, and each choir did an absolutely wonderful job. I couldn’t be more pleased!”
This was the 30th annual Spring Concert presented by the highly touted Nampa-based performance group. The concert was presented in Swayne Auditorium at N.N.U. to an enthusiastic and appreciative audience of several hundred.
“I was especially pleased with both the refined sound and the stage presence of each choir,” exclaimed Bruce Walker, Managing Director. “The singers have improved so much under the expert and enthusiastic tutelage of Mrs. Walker, and are to be congratulated for their continuing hard work!” 


Auditions: Tuesday, September 4th from 5:00 until 8:00 p.m. in the Nampa Civic Center Home Federal Room for all new members, and for singers wishing to advance. (For audition information, go to and click on “Auditions” in the menu bar.)

There is Music in You!

What an inspiring concert! We loved every minute of it! And the audience seemed to love it also!
What wonderful youth! What pure and lovely tone and clear diction! Thank you for a joyous semester of fun, hard work and beautiful and exciting music!

I loved working with you! I loved your dedication and I loved your performance! I also loved your bright shining faces, sparkling eyes and big smiles!

The person in charge of NNU events, who also ran the sound for us, was very impressed and is looking forward to our next concert. He said, you were doing performance of such high quality that he is excited to help us! "We have got to use those new big screens and get these kids faces up on them!"

It is always so fun to see the surprise on people's faces and to listen to their comments when they hear you for the first time!

Wow! What a sound!!

We love you! We will miss the lovely Senior girls who are graduating, but will look forward to the growth of another year, meeting and training more new students, and building on the great foundation you have laid.
