This week we step inside one of the region’s most well-respected youth ensembles:  The Pacific Youth Choir.  Led for its entire 13 year history by Mia Hall Miller, PYC  is simply a shining example of young people being invigorated by music.

The women of the Pacific Youth Choir rehearse at their annual retreat in Corbett, OR

Each year the Pacific Youth Choir begins its season by gathering in the woods for a retreat.  More than a hundred teenagers spend the weekend in rustic cabins in Corbett, Oregon – by the looks of it, a relaxing oasis.  But these kids are actually working very hard, bonding and learning a ton of music together.  In this episode of “On Deck” we’ll visit the Pacific Youth Choir’s annual retreat.
