The Children’s Choir was created because La Jeunesse saw a need for proper vocal training for children aged 7 to 12. The basics of musical theory are taught in an entertaining and effective style. As choristers mature and develop their voices, Artistic Director Markus Howard “graduates” the girls to Senior Choir and the boys to the Young Men’s Choir.
The choir sings youthful song selections from folk songs, to musical theatre and popular music. The repertoire ranges from fun to challenging, and the choir has performed locally in the musical Joseph, sung with The Oriana Singers and opened, along with The Senior Choir, for the Nylons.
