About Kids’ Choir
About the Kids’ Choir Program
The Kids’ Choir Program is the choral music program branch of the Kids’ Orchestra organization. In its fourth year, the program provides nearly 100 students the opportunity to study music literacy and sing in a choir. Kids’ Choir students perform in at least two informal concerts/year and are invited to perform at select community performances throughout the year.
The Kids’ Choir Program is comprised of two groups organized by age: Mini-Musicians (K-1st) and Kids’ Choir (2nd-6th).
Kids’ Choir is open to all K-6th grade students in Baton Rouge and the surrounding area.
Students enrolled in the Kids’ Choir Program meet for rehearsals once a week on Monday evenings from 5:45 p.m. – 7:15 p.m. at First United Methodist Church. Students enrolled in the Kids’ Choir Program are also invited to perform at select community performances throughout the year.
Mini-Musicians is a fun, educational introduction to music literacy and choral singing for kindergarten and first-grade
students. Mini-Musicians meets once a week for an hour to play musical games, learn new songs, improvise and explore rhythm instruments, enjoy creative movement activities, and develop music listening and music reading skills. Mini-Musicians performs at least two informal concerts/year (usually in conjunction with Kids’ Choir concerts) to share all the exciting new things they have learned. Participating in Mini-Musicians is a great way to further your child’s musical development while he/she makes new friends in the process.
