ATLANTA YOUNG SINGERS is proud of our impact on the community, our commitment to reach underserved audiences, our collaborations with other arts and service organizations, our support of new art and living Georgia artists, and our partnerships with schools to find ways to reach children who have little access to quality music programming.
Mission guides the AYS program, with strong emphasis on personal growth as well as music literacy and exceptional public musical performance. We focus on development of the whole child, creating leaders, artists, mentors, future patrons of the arts, and committed citizens. AYS Singers give back to the community in so many ways: benefit performances with AYS, coaching workbook sessions, leading workshops with the staff, sharing their gifts and skills with school ensembles, and doing service projects.

In November 2012, AYS launched the AYS COMPOSER NEXT DOOR Project that facilitates interactions between Singers and composers, where the Singers plan and implement the interaction with minimal dictation from adult staff. A key component of the Project is a blog authored by AYS Singers themselves about their experiences with composers, the composition process, and their own thoughts about the music. Highlighted composers include Jonathan David, Andrejs Jansons, Eric Banks, Andrea Clearfield, Mary Goetze, and Kevin Robison.
