Open to children in grades 1–8 from all communities on the North Shore.
2016–17 season enrollment is currently open—register online today!

We nurture student musicianship, build confidence, and encourage artistic expression through developmentally appropriate vocal instruction. The Children's Choir provides an ensemble experience that allows students to develop musically as individuals while contributing to the joy and artistry of singing together with their peers.

We believe that students of varying ages can learn from each other by leading and working together to create something beyond the individual.

LYRIC AND CONCERT CHOIRS
In order to receive the most developmentally appropriate vocal instruction, the Children's Choir is split into two ensembles: Lyric Choir (students receive more individual instruction, more attention given to basic vocal technique, developing vocal foundations, matching pitch, rehearsal etiquette) and Concert Choir (building on foundations learned in Lyric Choir, students begin exploring ensemble repertoire that includes some 2 part harmony)
