Children's Choir

Open to children in grades 1–8 from all communities on the North Shore
Fall 2015 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. 

Fall 2015 enrollment is still open—complete our online registration form today!

This registration form is for all new and returning Choir members who wish to sing beginning in September 2015 (Fall Semester)

Rehearsals take place on Monday afternoons from 4:30–5:30 pm (Lyric Choir - first through third grade) and 4:30–6 p.m. (Concert Choir - third grade through eighth grade) in Phillips Music Center Recital Hall.  There are two performances during the fall semester (including the Gordon College Christmas Gala Concerts) and one performance during the spring semester.

In order to receive the most developmentally appropriate vocal instruction, the 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)

Tuition for 2015–2016: $395 ($275 for siblings)
Reduced rates are available for members of the Gordon community including faculty and staff, and full time students at the Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
