FWCC Prep Program
The Preparatory Program is designed to help students 6-7 years old develop their vocal talent by building skills such as pitch matching, tone development, breathing techniques, and overall self-confidence. Students in this program give periodic "informances" for parents/guardians and family members throughout the season. The group is directed by Susan LaCroix, Apprentice Choir director.
Interested families may contact the Fort Wayne Children's Choir office, 260-481-0481 or info@fwcchoir.org, for more information or to enroll. No placement or audition is necessary for the prep program.
