The First Kids Choir will resume our weekly supper and rehearsal on Thursday nights beginning September 5, with supper at 6pm followed by rehearsal from 6:30-7:30pm.
Provided by parent volunteers, our suppertime gives the children a place around the table together to decompress after their busy school day, and to reconnect with themselves and one another through a meal and conversation.
After supper, the children are led through a rehearsal that includes mindfulness and meditative exercises, movement activities, breathing exercises, vocal warm-ups, sight-singing, rhythm games, note reading, and learning new songs. Once a month, the children sing a song for the 10:30 church service, offering a wide variety of songs in various languages and musical styles.
Our annual Santa Lucia pageant, Christmas Eve pageant, Easter Vigil song and skit, and participation on Easter morning are highlights of our year together. We also like to throw a party or two to reward all of the children’s hard work.
Emphasis is placed on increasing vocal and musicianship skills while maintaining a healthy balance of learning and fun. We hope your child can join us this year, whether it is at weekly suppers and choir rehearsals or during our seasonal events. Please contact Kids Choir director Angela with any questions.
