Grades 7 through 12: This choir is a place for our youth to sing with joy. Selections from traditional to contemporary striving for a mix of genres, but many times the group picks out the music. Building on their school experiences with music, as well as choirs, most is done in 2 or 3 parts so that the youth experience the fun of singing in harmony. Guitar players are also welcome, as some music is more appropriately accompanied by guitar. Directed by Debbie Zellers.
