Youth having completed Grade 6 or Grade 7 through Grade 12 may participate in the youth ensembles. All Youth should attend the following rehearsals:

  • Sunday: 6:15-7:15 p.m.
  • Monday-Thursday: 10:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
  • Monday-Wednesday: 1:30-2:30 p.m.
  • Closing Concert (Thursday): 7:30 p.m.

Age requirements

  • Middle High Choir — completed Grade 6 or 7 through completed Grade 8
  • Senior High Choir — completed Grade 9 through completed Grade 12

Youth must be registered for the appropriate grade level ensemble. We have contracted with clinicians for specific grade levels, and we must honor those contracts.

In many places, sixth graders are enrolled in Middle School, but not all are ready vocally or socially for the Middle High Choir. Some prefer to spend another year in the Children’s Choir or DRUM program. The parent and/or choir director can make the best decision about these participants.
