Children & Community Youth Choirs

Greetings! We are here to support your work with children’s choirs both in school and community organizations. Every child should have a good music education, and hopefully as many as possible will also have the experience of a good choral program. Children’s choir programs present a lot of varied challenges including recruitment, repertoire, fundraising, and managing a budget. This page is intended to be a connection where we can support each other, provide referrals to helpful resources, and a repertoire list. I am working on a resource list, and welcome your suggestions. Please get in touch with any questions or just to say hello!
