Children's Music


 


Cherub Choir

 Cherub-for-brochure

Started in September 2009, this choir introduces young children (K-3rd grade) to music and singing. Young members learn the fundamentals of music and singing—ear training, reading, and simple music concepts—before matriculating to the Resident Training Choir. The Cherub Choir sings one Sunday each month at the 9 am service. Katy Gentry is the director of this group.


 

Rehearsals Wednesdays 5:30-6:60pm
Services Sunday 9am (as scheduled)


 

Resident Training Choir

Resident-Training-Choir-Photo-2014

 

This is a combined choir of boys and girls (grades 4-6). This choir meets one a week to learn more intermediate skills in vocal production, music theory, reading, liturgy training, and practice. It serves at the 9:00 liturgy on select Sundays of each month. This choir serves to bring formative experience to the children in a way that enables them to understand why we do what we do. All children are welcome to join. We use the Voice for Life curriculum as set forth by the Royal School of Church Music, each chorister is tested to assess their ability and awarded a ribbon to indicate their level.

Rehearsals Wednesday 5:30-6:30pm
    Sunday 8-8:50am (as scheduled)
    Services Sunday 9am (as scheduled)
