The YouthCUE Difference

Quality Choral Music

YouthCUE holds its repertoire selections to the highest standard. We are constantly searching for well-crafted, age-appropriate anthems which highlight the timeless word of God. Our past selections include works from hundreds of composers from all time periods and every imaginable background.

Professional orchestral accompaniment

Most YouthCUE events are accompanied by a professional orchestra. We started this way 29 years ago, and we believe this to be one of the most unique and exciting aspects of our ministry.


Memorized repertoire is the standard for most YouthCUE events. Not only does the group respond better and appear sharper in worship and concert, but the memorized melodies, harmonies and text find their ways into the heart more readily when committed to memory.

What I love about YouthCUE

Reflections on National Honor Choir

“YouthCUE has been an awesome experience because of all the teamwork…it’s united all of us and helped us grow stronger together as well as with our faith in God.

Singing all the songs and seeing all the smiles on peoples’ faces…just seeing everybody from different cultures is also an awesome thing YouthCUE has shown me.”

Mason, NHC '16


“My favorite thing about YouthCUE is the joy you get when you get to sing at the beautiful churches and for the elderly.

YouthCUE (National Honor Choir) gives you the music with high expectations you’ll learn it yourself. I’m a hard worker, but this experience taught me I have to work even harder to be at that level.”

Kathryn, NHC '16


“YouthCUE has taught me a lot of things, especially things that I can use in college, such as the value of teamwork, leadership, and the ability to interact with different people.

Blending our sound, listening to one another and balancing out all of the different parts is definitely a teamwork activity.”

Dominique, NHC '16

We’ve organized everything you need right here.

In our ongoing effort to launch young lives with the love of scripture and music, YouthCUE has sought the right spot for a summer camp experience. YouthCUE is overjoyed to announce that in July 2020 we will unveil much more than a camp, it’s CUEniversity!  

We’ve found a perfect partner in our friends at University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, Texas to offer an immersive experience unlike any other.  The musical offerings will give students and directors alike an excellent base for developing their repertoire and educating young people in worship leadership.
