About BAYS

Established in 2007, Bay Area Youth Singers is an independent, non-profit organization in Houston’s Clear Lake area that fosters a love of music. Members develop their singing voices, poise, self-discipline, and a love and appreciation of great music through weekly rehearsals and performances throughout the year.

BAYS alumni have gone on to perform in regional, state and national competitions as well as become members of competitive high school choirs.
