Music is a big part of what we offer, and our music program is one of the strongest in the city. We offer a wonderful community for adult choristers as well as choirs for children. Many young people use their choir involvement towards the community service hours their high schools require. Many of our choristers have been part of this community for many years – a true testament to how wonderful the choice experience is at Grace!
Choirs for young people teach teamwork, music, friendship, and are just a lot of fun!. Ours are amazing. Come hear them or join in. Private lessons, scholarships, concerts, touring, and community are just a few of the benefits of being part of our choirs for young people. All ages, all skill levels. All Grace.
