The Children's Choir was formed to provide opportunities for the children of Plymouth and surrounding communities to participate in a quality choral music education program outside of the classroom. We create a positive environment for learning and your children will work with an experienced Children’s Choral Director and Accompanist. Your child’s relationship with us will be not only positive, but life changing. This program is designed for the child's beginning and advancing musical experience.
This choir program brings the power and discipline of quality choral music education as a vehicle to help children develop excellence in musicianship, self-confidence, social awareness and academic skills while setting the stage for continued active involvement in choral singing throughout their lives. Students who love to sing and are committed to learning are invited! Excellence in healthy vocal technique, music literacy, and choral part-singing skills all provide the context for learning in these ensembles for the beginner choral student, aged 8-14.
