Community engagement is key to Heartland Youth Choir's mission to change lives through music. As a followup to our performance at  The World Food Prize , HYC singers have been sharing thoughts about how they can make a change in the world. We know that work starts at home. So we're joining  Windsor Heights Lutheran Church  in support of the  Urbandale Food Pantry  with a Diaper Drive, November 10 - 18. We're collecting diapers (sizes 4 - 6 are especially popular) and training pants, for children and families in need. Please join us! Diapers can be dropped off at the HYC office or ordered online and delivered to Windsor Heights Lutheran Church, 1240 66th St., Windsor Heights, IA, 50324.  (You can support HYC twice if you order through Amazon Smile!)  If you have questions about how you can help, contact us at office@joinhyc.org. Let's show how, when we all come together, we can make an impact!

Heartland Youth Choir, founded by Barbara Sletto in 2003, provides a performance-based program for youth, emphasizing musical literacy and character development.

Heartland Youth Choir provides a unique opportunity for children of diverse backgrounds with a particular aptitude in vocal music to explore that interest beyond their school setting. Quality literature from all styles and periods form the foundation for this exploration.
