Our Choirs

Training Choir

The Training Choir is open to boys and girls in second through fifth grades who love to sing. In weekly rehearsals, singers learn fundamental music theory and vocal technique but most importantly they have fun!

Unlike the other choirs, the Training Choir is semester-based, with 12-week sessions in fall and spring. Each year, participating singers receive 60 hours of instruction and perform a minimum of four times.

Auditions are held by appointment May through August for the Fall Semester and December through January for the Spring Semester. There is no fee to audition. Full and partial scholarships are available based on financial need.

“Through music and your leadership, these children learn to perform in different languages while experiencing the diversity of an array of world cultures. The understanding they gain will serve them well as they enter adulthood.”
