Objectives of the Children's Choir Program:

  • To teach them the meaning of the words they sing
  • To find and encourage their head voice, sing on good vowels, develop good breath to sustain long phrases, and learn proper pronunciation
  • To find the most meaningful texts set to the best music, in the best range, for each group, and teach it in a way that encourages the children to understand it, take pleasure in signing it well, and believe in the worth of their contribution
  • Thereby to glorify God, and to worship Him in the beauty of holiness
