The Sinanian Youth Choir Program (SYCP) was established and named in honor of our first AACCWD Chairman, Dr. Ronald Sinanian. Dr. Sinanian, a DDS in trade, is also a professional organist who has served as Dean of the American Guild of Organists and resident organist at Saint Peter Armenian Apostolic Church in Van Nuys, CA. His early days were accompanied with apprenticeship under his late-mother Ms. Alice Sinanian who also served her church not only with music, but with love for the Almighty and fellow church choir members. Dr. Sinanian’s ground breaking efforts led to the establishment of the AACCWD and helped shape our organization into what we have become today.
The Sinanian Youth Choir Program will serve as the educational platform to educate, train, and recruit every new generation of young church-goers to the melodies and hymns of our sacred music. These junior choir members (aged 8-18) will have access to live & in-person educators, referential digital resources, and recurring workshops throughout the Western Diocese. As these individuals grow older, they will be immersed within the traditional church choir at their home parishes ensuring that our succession efforts are not only fruitful, but home to a new generation of church choir members, friends, and families.
