Music

Children's Choir (Grades K-8)

The Oldham County Children's Choir is for middle school and elementary-aged students who love to sing! These young musicians will grow and develop in their vocal technique through learning about tone quality, breath support, diction, and intonation, as well as ear training, sight reading, and singing with two or more parts. Singers will learn the best of children's choral literature and enjoy being a part of a group of young musicians who find joy in singing! This is an audition-based ensemble. Auditions for new students will happen virtually. Please call the Arts Center for more information. There will be a final dress rehearsal and concert on March 30.
