YSIH CONTEST CATEGORIES
We are aware of the important responsibility we have here at YSIH to create an inclusive environment for all of our participants. For that reason we have decided to move away from gendered category names, as we know there are people who compete in these categories who do not identify as such.
Young Men in Harmony will now be referred to as Lower Voices (LV)
Young Women in Harmony will now be referred to as Upper Voices (UV)
Mixed Harmony will now be referred to as Mixed Voices (MV)
We believe this is an important step forward for YSIH and we will continue to make changes as needed to ensure that our competitions and events are inclusive and welcoming spaces for everyone who takes part.

It is now a registered charitable trust overseen by a board of trustees and supported by a national management team.
YSIH has grown to be one of the most successful a cappella competitions in the world. We aim to provide students with opportunities to achieve musical excellence and personal growth through performance, competition and workshops...
