Milwaukee Children's Choir believes in educating the whole child through music. We believe in developing life skills such as personal expression, teamwork, and self confidence through hands-on choral instruction. Utilizing a mixture of theory and singing, the Milwaukee Children's Choir curriculum expands passion for the arts and builds skills learned in previous lessons. Our choral structure blends a chorister's abilities, age, and musical knowledge, offering multiple choir levels for a safe and reassuring learning environment. Each rehearsal begins with an active warm-up, focusing on vocal health before singing and includes demonstrations and hands-on experience throughout the rehearsal. Our program includes Prelude Choirs, Training Choirs, Resident Choirs, Voices of Eterna, and the Milwaukee Youth Chorale.
