The Jamaica Youth Chorale (JYC) is committed to the highest standard in the performance of choral music. Founded in December 2008, the JYC quickly emerged as one of the nation’s leading choirs being featured in many local, regional and international publications, productions and events to critical acclaim. This includes representing Jamaica at the World Choir Games - Championship level in South Africa; features on the BBC; Caribbean Passport; The Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod in the UK; and an annual concert season and recital. The Choir has also released an album, SPIRIT: Spirituals & Other Sacred Works by Jamaican Composers available on all streaming platforms

The SATB choir consists of members from across the island was founded and is led by award winning conductor Greg Simms with Musical Direction by Dr. Kathy Brown, Cedron Walters and Dr. Odane Dawkins. 

Coming from the expanse of the Jamaican culture with unique innovations, the JYC’s repertoire is centered on but not limited to Jamaican and other Caribbean musical styles. A part of the Chorale’s mandate is to provide an opportunity for young composers and arrangers in choral music to present their works especially in Jamaican folk, spirituals, contemporary and any other work. 

In keeping with the mandate of the JYC, the Redemption Songs Tour has the following objectives:

  1. To build and perform choral repertoire by Jamaican composers to new audiences;

  2. To build and perform choral repertoire by Black American composers;

  3. To present a repertoire of music appropriate for the commemoration and celebration of Black History Month and Black Excellence;

  4. To provide opportunities for the JYC to exchange and network with other choirs, composers and creative professionals – including the Jamaican Diaspora;

  5. To provide opportunities for JYC members to engage with the American Experience, the Black American experience in particular
