WEST COAST YOUTH
HELPING OTHERS THROUGH THE POWER OF MUSIC
The West Coast Youth Music Society (WCYMS) is a BC registered non-profit organization that strives to help others through the power of music while also giving young musicians performance opportunities all around the West Coast. We enjoy helping others by organizing volunteer performances, charity concerts, and musical events. We also host music programs for people of all ages and all abilities. There is no fee to join the team and no fee to watch performances. Please email us if you would like to request a performance.
MELODIES FOR MEDICINE
We can't all become doctors overnight, but we can our own unique skills to help the people who need it most. Our WCYMS team has the power of music, which is why we decided to hold a charity concert for the BC Children's Hospital Foundation on October 18th, 2019. All proceeds from the concert were split between the oncology department and the music therapy program at the BC Children's Hospital. Musicians in this concert include Carnegie Hall performers, national music competition winners, and brilliant young musicians who have gained national recognition.
