Children & Community Youth Choirs


My name is La Nell Martin, and I am super excited to be here to serve you as the Children Choirs Resource Representative in the schools and communities. Please send a holler to say “HEY” or to ask a question. If I don’t know the answer, I will try my best to find the answer. If you see me, please feel free to introduce yourself. I want to get to know you and what you are doing in your choirs! I hope to see you at future conferences and gatherings. Have a great beginning of the new school year. See you soon!
