St. Paul’s Youth Choir

creating the next generation of choral singers

Age Group: reading level through high school. Teen singers have the added responsibility of mentoring younger singers along with the opportunity to sing with the Adult Choir.

Voice for Life, a Royal School of Church Music-affiliated program

  • The focus areas of Voice for Life, a graded chorister training program, are:
    • using the voice well
    • musical skills and understanding
    • repertoire
    • belonging in the choir (commitment, punctuality, responsibility)
    • choir in context: Christian ministry and music

Year One Goals

  • minimum: three singers
  • establish RSCM program
  • weekly rehearsals
  • preparing for occasional Sunday services
  • preparing for Lessons & Carols (December 17, 2017, 3pm)

Year Two-Five

  • three to eight singers
    • first class of singers now mentors new class…and so on
  • Youth Choir is now open to the community, regardless of church affiliation
  • singing regularly for Sunday services (e.g., monthly or bi-weekly)
  • regular participation at St. Paul’s choral programs, including Lessons & Carols
  • community outreach programs (e.g., caroling, diocesan events)

Year Six onward

  • a well-established St. Paul’s Youth Choir with eight to fifteen members–or more!
  • weekly participation in Sunday services
  • the sky’s the limit: choir tours, concerts, hosting our own RSCM summer program

YEAR ONE: WHAT DO WE NEED?

PARTICIPATION AND COMMITMENT. That’s all.
