We believe that every child is a unique and beloved individual created by God. We welcome children with all ranges of musical abilities to our choirs. We are also committed to including children with special needs in our music program. Please help your child’s choir teacher know the best methods of teaching your child. All children, ages 3 through 6th grade are welcome!
Children’s choirs resume on Wednesday, August 21, and Children’s Chimes will resume on Wednesday, September 4.
