About Our Choirs

Aurora (Children's Choir) – These singers experience the foundational elements of the choral arts (music theory, vocal pedagogy, performance techniques) through fun activities such as movement and dance, music technology, and playing instruments in addition to traditional choral rehearsal techniques.  Aurora performs at two major concerts each year as well as outreach performances and special events.  No interview or audition is required for participation.
