WHO ARE WE?
The West Coast Youth Music Society (WCYMS) is a BC registered non-profit organization founded by Kitty Liu in 2017. WCYMS consists of a team of youth with the same vision: to help others through the power of music. We have been striving to achieve that goal ever since being founded through monthly concerts for various people, including senior centre residents, children with disabilities, and the general public.
All of our performers strive to be the best musicians and work extremely hard to achieve our common goal of bringing music to more places and delivering the joy of music to the public. Our musicians are driven, enthusiastic and ambitious. Many of them have participated in music competitions/festivals and won national recognition, and many are well-rounded individuals who are leaders in their respective clubs at school.
WCYMS regularly performs at various senior centres and other public facilities across the lower mainland. We have performed at over dozens of different senior centres all over the lower mainland. Not only does WCYMS bring people joy by performing music for them, but our society also gives children a chance to showcase their talent.
WCYMS has a number of younger musicians who are still learning and growing in their music journey. While helping others through the power of music, we also help these little musicians by giving them performance opportunities to aid their music learning.
Besides our monthly senior centre concerts, we also hold numerous charity concerts such as our annual Melodies For Medicine concert. Last year, we raised over $2,000 for the BC Children's Hospital Foundation.
