In an effort to realize our vision of a community where choral singing is essential and accessible to all, Columbia Choirs is committed to providing choral programming in the community to lower barriers for young people to start singing.
Enrichment Choirs In the Schools
In 2022, Columbia Choirs piloted a program in partnership with PTSAs at elementary schools in the Lake Washington School Districts. These particular schools did not currently have an after school program where students could be in a choir with their peers.
Each Enrichment Choir program consists of 9-10 weeks of weekly rehearsals, culminating with a performance at their school for friends and family.
The goal of this program is to bolster the great music education already happening in the schools and create stronger choral foundations throughout the district.
During the 2022-23 School Year, we have held programs at:
- Mark Twain Elementary (Fall 2022, Spring 2023)
- AG Bell Elementary (Fall 2022)
- Sandburg Elementary (Winter 2023)
We are already scheduling programs for the 2023-24 School Year!
