Choristers is seeking new members! Please email Associate Director of Music Isaac Drewes (firstname.lastname@example.org) to learn about this opportunity for your child to receive a free, high-caliber music education.
Central Lutheran Choristers, our children’s choir program, is built on the fundamental truth children are not only the future of the church; children are the church, here and now. We seek to live into this reality through three means:
- Faith formation – Choristers learn about our Lutheran-Christian faith through music. They gain a deeper appreciation of how and why we worship the way we do.
- Music education – Choristers learn the fundamentals of singing, music theory, and choir membership. They are challenged to learn new skills and expand upon what they know.
- Church leadership – Choristers lead worship through their singing together. Participation in Choristers forms life-long, engaged leaders.
Our Chorister program is affiliated with the Royal School of Church Music in America (RSCM), whose graduated curriculum Voice for Life encourages singers to develop their musical skills through a series of milestones. Older participants may attend RSCM summer choir courses, where they join with Choristers from around the country in a weeklong, residential choir experience.
Normally, this sort of music education would have significant tuition. However, we are excited to offer this high-caliber music education free-of-charge, as a ministry of Central Lutheran to the wider community.
