Dedicated to educational and choral excellence, the chorus cultivates musical, artistic, and emotional growth in its singers, girls and boys ages seven to sixteen. The Elgin Children's Chorus inspires students, parents, and audience members with superb live performances and its continued mission to fill the world with song.
Did you know that children who sing in choruses get significantly better grades?
Educators are emphatic about the positive role that choirs play in childhood education and development. They agree that choir participation can help make students better participants in groups, help develop stronger social skills, lead to better emotional expression and management, improve overall academic performance, and help instill self-discipline and punctuality. (Statistics provided by 2009 Chorus America Impact Study)
Choir participation is economical, too! All choristers receive over 60 hours of superior music education for less than $6 per hour, making membership in the Chorus an incredible value. Schedule an audition by filling out our online form or by calling us at 847-931-7464.
