The Children’s Choir School at Second Presbyterian Church offers a comprehensive music curriculum that encourages the spiritual and artistic growth of children age four through fifth grade. Children receive instruction in music reading, notation, rhythmic and vocal training, and ensemble skills like part-singing, tuning and blending. In addition, children deepen their familiarity with scripture and worship. Skills developed in Choir School lead to a lifetime enjoyment of praising God through music.
Children's choirs (Cherub and Carol) are currently meeting in-person from 4:00 - 4:50 p.m. in McFarland Hall on Sunday afternoons as a combined group.
Because of the Coronavirus, singing during worship is not currently possible. Therefore, the children's choir will be producing pre-recorded music for the following Sundays: February 7, March 28 (Palm Sunday), and May 9 (Mother's Day). On May 2 we are planning a cumulative outdoor concert experience. Stay tuned for details!

For children, age 4-1st grade
This playful approach to music learning will help children reach their potentials in singing, vocabulary development and motor skills while developing an understanding of church music and worship participation. Children will discover worship as a place where people express love for God and experience the Bible, its stories and people as a part of their everyday lives.

For children, grades 2-5
Children develop musical skills in music reading, notation, rhythmic and vocal training, and ensemble skills like part-singing, tuning and blending. Children will enhance their understanding of the power of music to express feelings, tell stories, and call people to Christian discipleship. Additionally, children will learn specific age-appropriate hymns focusing on theological, historical and cultural aspects and what they mean.
