The Fort Wayne Children's Choir Preparatory Program is designed for younger students, 6-7 years old, with little to no choral experience. Directed by Susan LaCroix, a master music educator and Apprentice Choir director, children learn the basics of being in a choir without the pressure of performance. Singers learn rehearsal etiquette and the foundations of singing in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. No placement session is required. Sign-up begins this month with rehearsals starting September 12. For info or to register, please call the Children's Choir office, 260-481-0481. There is a fee to cover the cost of the director and materials used.
