The Summerland Children’s Choir
Sept 14-Dec 14/2017
The Summerland Children's Choir offers two age groupings in choral singing and music education
Thursday practices are:
3:15-4:00pm Children ages 5-7 years
3:15-4:30pm Children ages 8-11 years
Through games, story, vocal technique and song practice, we become a choir.
The full choir learns together, developing shared abilities in performance - after which the older group continues with age-appropriate skills and songs. Exciting!
What We Do
Last year, the SCC were featured at the lighting-up moment of the Summerland Festival of Lights, where thousands thronged the streets, and performed for a rapt crowd at the delightful Peachland Light-up. They sang their hearts out at the magical Kettle Valley Railway Christmas train.
In the spring, the choir celebrated Canada's sesqui-centennial, performing beautifully at the Penticton Kiwanis Music Festival and offered a wonderful concert with the Penticton Youth Choir and Okanagan Children's Choir.
children 8-11: Incredibles
