Baylor University's Center for Christian Music Studies will present YouthCUE, an interdenominational organization dedicated to making an impact through the youth choir experience, on Friday, Feb. 24, through Sunday, Feb. 26, on the Baylor campus. The festival will conclude with a grand concert, free and open to the public, at 3 p.m. Sunday in Jones Concert Hall of the Glennis McCrary Music Building.

Each year, YouthCUE brings youth choirs from across the country together to participate in festivals. Individual choirs learn a prescribed repertoire and then gather with other choirs to sing together. Founded in 1990, YouthCUE now boasts more than 30,000 active youths from all over the country.

Baylor hosts one of the five festivals each year. Last year's festival attracted choirs from as far east as Louisiana and as far west as California. Members of the Baylor Symphony Orchestra joined the 300 member YouthCUE choir for the final concert.

Glennis McCrary Music Building is at 110 Baylor Ave.
