Experience the joy of music-making in a county-wide choral program. Macomb Children’s Chorus is comprised of three choirs: Junior, Senior, Troubadours. Singers are placed on the basis of their musical ability and their motivation to learn and work at singing. The intent of the Children's Chorus is to enhance and expand upon the musical opportunities that the children receive in their school and church choirs by providing additional instruction and experiences.
Rehearsals emphasize the development of musicianship and vocal technique. Through the study of the highest quality music literature, the singers develop musical artistry, poise, confidence, discipline and an understanding and love of the art of music.
