Heartland Youth Choir was established in 2003 by celebrated composer and educator Barbara Sletto as a safe, performance-based program for diverse Central Iowa youth to grow their musicianship and character. Thousands of children participate in up to 40 performances annually as part of HYC.

Madison County Music Co. is proud to offer a satellite program right here in Winterset for students in Madison and surrounding counties, allowing them to have the same wonderful experience without needing to drive to Des Moines every week. By registering for our youth choir program, you are making a commitment for a full school year. For a full calendar of currently-scheduled events and performances, CLICK HERE.
