Children's Choir Organizations
Wednesdays from 6:15-7 p.m. (these choirs meet during the academic calendar year)
PRESCHOOL CHOIRS 3'S
Jo Wills and Laura Beth Winder, Co-Directors,
Michaela Slocum, adult leader
Our preschool choir for children three years old meets in room 234 on the second floor. Children are introduced to motions and movement with music and they are encouraged to find their singing voice. Many are shy and this is a good way to help them gain confidence in singing together.
CHERUB CHOIR (PRESCHOOL 4'S AND 5'S)
Sara Spradling Burks and Hannah Grace Hatley Co-Directors
Using differing instrumentation, Sara and Hannah Grace capitalize on the work started in the three-year-old choir. Steady beat is emphasized and having a good time while learning the music. The ladies work hard to give the kids a stress-free environment with a lot of smiles and good encouragement.
MUSIC MAKERS (GRADES 1-3)
Lassie Hatley, Director
Laura Melton, Jeff Calvert, and Natalie Smith, adult leaders
With the children entering grade school, the music level is raised and children are encouraged to hold music in their hands and to follow along with the words. Elementary music instruction skills are pointed out and taught while music learning is taught in a fun way. This choir sings periodically throughout the school year as it has pieces ready for worship leadership.
YOUNG MUSICIANS (GRADES 4-6)
Sarah Rich, Director
John Bateman and Joseph Mendum, adult leaders
The Young Musicians are working hard as their abilities have escalated in regards to their musical skills. This choir will sing several times each semester giving the children ample time to lead in a worship service. It models how to present music to the Lord in worship. A variety of musical styles is used by this group.
