Neighborhood-based Community Choirs have been part of the Chorale’s Education Programs since 2000. These choirs provide a brave musical space for children after school and teach young singers performance skills to develop confidence, respect for others, and teamwork. With no audition necessary, community choirs are offered free of charge to families, partner schools, and the community.
