Happy Valley Children’s Chorus

  • Ages 6 to 10
  • Tuesdays, 4 to 5 PM

We sing old and new tunes about serious and silly topics. Life needs both and music reflects life. We hold a fall and spring session that ends with a performance. For new singers being part of the larger group increases confidence. For more confident singers there are opportunities for solos and small group numbers.
