Dear families,

The first time you register for OYC through this system, there is a lot to input. Create your account with the PARENT email and name. Then, when you click register, you will notice YOUR name, not your child's, comes up in the Select student box. Do not worry - here is the solution!

When you go to the registration page, there is a button that says "Add Contact" below the emergency contact information. If you click on that, you can enter your child's name and relationship (child), along with birthday and gender, and save that.

Once that's saved, your child's name should appear as an option under the "select student" category and you can click on it and proceed with your child being on the roster. After you hit "register", you will come to a Questions page.

On this page, if you have multiple people who can pick up, please list names with commas in between them. Also, if your child attends After care, please list it here - I'm noticing the developers missed that on the drop down menu and have contacted them about it.

Please contact our office via if you have questions or would like a PDF copy of your registration form. We will be happy to set this up for you from the information you provide, and in the future you should be able to sign in, click some buttons, and get back to your day!

Thank you for your patience as we navigate our new system - and thank you as well for your questions and concerns!

In harmony,

Keri Butkevich

Executive Director, Oakland Youth Chorus

Chamber Singers (with volunteer hours)


Ages: 12 - 19

OYC's award-winning onsite ensembles include our Concert Chorus for singers in 5th through 12th grade, as well as our advanced Chamber Singers, all of whom join OYC through an audition process. Audition appointments can be made with Artistic Director La Nell Martin at any time by emailing or by calling 510-287-9700.

Oakland Youth Chorus singers have been wowing audiences 40 years, and have performed all over the world, with special guest artists such as Bobby McFerrin, Linda Tillery, SoVoSo, and Keith Terry. OYC alumni include La Toya London of American Idol Season 3, recording artist Goapele, Stevie Wonder pianist and backup singer and recent Arsenio Hall Posse 2.0 member, Victoria Theodore, and Roosevelt Credit, cast member of the 2012 Tony Award-winning musical, Gershwin's Porgy and Bess. Like hundreds of our alumni, they received a great musical foundation and met lifetime friends here at OYC.

Whether your singer's goals are to be the next American Idol or to enjoy singing and performing with a welcoming group of friends, OYC provides the professional, highly joyful musical training to support all of our singers in their success. We hope you'll join us! Concert Chorus and Chamber Singers are directed by Artistic Director La Nell Martin.
