South Hadley Children’s Chorus

South Hadley Children’s Chorus, May, 2012

Our Chorus

Founded in 2001 by the South Hadley Chorale, the South Hadley Children’s Chorus provides girls and boys ages 7 and up from throughout the Pioneer Valley excellent vocal training, helps them learn the value of working together to produce something of beauty, and enables them to gain confidence and poise by performing on stage in a number of different venues. The SHCC is meant to give talented singers an opportunity to explore their musical gifts beyond what is available to them in their schools. The group performs every March as part of the South Hadley Chorale’s annual concert at Abbey Chapel and does two or three other concerts during their “season” (mid-September through late April). Rehearsals are held on Wednesday late afternoons at All Saints Episcopal Church, South Hadley. Be sure to find us on Facebook (South Hadley Children’s Chorus) and ‘like’ our page.
